Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has called for a review of Nigeria’s medical system

Oshiomhole  said this on Thursday at the Founders Day and Launching of Endowment fund of the University of Bénin Teaching Hospital (UBTH) while disclosing how his ex-wife was wrongly diagnosed.

According to him, his ex-wife, Clara died of wrong diagnoses and was a victim of quack doctors.

Oshiomhole added that wrong diagnoses can be prevented if doctors treat patients only in that aspect in which they have competence and governments provide robust regulation on the health system.

Oshiomhole  said, “You visit a hospital, one doctor is gynaecologist, psychologist, pediatric, and the doctor treats everything. My wife was unfortunate to have been diagnosed as having something different while the cancer in her Bosom  was growing.

“This generalized system of medical system is what we must review. It is not the task of government that things are not working. People elect government to make things work.

“That was why I decided to build what I called Five Star hospital to replace the decayed Central Hospital. I do hope that one day that hospital will open and you will see the equipment.
“One thing we need to do is appropriate compensation. When we have the right policy framework, the other level of compensation, people are paid according to, I believe doctors working outside the country will come back.”
