We Train Doctors In Nigeria For Free, Yet They Escape Overseas After Qualifying - Chris Ngige

Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige has said medical doctors in Nigeria are trained for next to nothing, as they are made to pay an average of N48,000 per section as fees in public tertiary institutions.

Ngige said that was not the case in Europe and America where most of them run to for greener pastures, where they pay between €80,000 euros or dollars above per section to acquire the same kind of education.

The Labour Minister said this while featuring at the State House briefings coordinated by the Presidential Media Team on Tuesday, in Abuja.

He accused the medical professionals leaving the country to work abroad of ingratitude, stating that a good number of them lack a sense of commitment to nation-building.

He said their counterparts in Europe and America access loans to get trained as medical personnel and some keep paying back such loans even after graduation.

Ngige, however, said it was not just a bag of misfortune for the country, as some of the so-called Nigerians going abroad end up coming back home to establish quality healthcare hospitals in Lagos and Abuja, which other citizens now access.

Responding to a question on why it is always difficult for the government to nip public sector workers’ crisis in the bud before it snowballs into a strike, Ngige said his ministry has been able to conciliate about 4000 labour disputes successfully.

He said more often than not, nobody hears about the interventions and that the ministry has been quite proactive contrary to opinions held by many Nigerians.

Are all  the students medical students in Nigeria, on scholarships? Let their parents or guardians answer you. Some federal universities are charging medical students 400 to 500 thousand naira per session, is that free education?
Ngige, mind your comments! They are free to migrate to a better condition of service.

Then you need to come up with creative and value-added solutions to solve the problem. This needs to be a combination of improved working conditions, remuneration and secured recoverable debt.
