BREAKING: Minister Of Labour, Chris Ngige, Storms Live TV, Drops Major Bombshell, Today

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has said that Doctors who feel they want to relocate in search of greener pastures, are free to do so, as the nation has enough Medical Personnel.

Ngige stated this on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily, on Wednesday morning.

The Minister was responding to a question on brain drain, and the deliberate recruitment of Nigerian Doctors by Foreign Embassies in Nigeria, to the detriment of the nation’s Health sector.

In his response, however, Ngige, who is also a Medical Doctor, said that there is nothing wrong with Doctors leaving the country, as they will continue to send foreign exchange home, which could in turn, grow the economy.

He said: “No, I am not worried (about Doctors leaving the country). We have surplus. If you have surplus, you export. It happened some years ago here. I was taught Chemistry and Biology by Indian Geachers, in my secondary school days.

“There are surplus in their country, and we also have surplus in the Medical profession in our country. I can tell you this. In my area, we have excess.

“Who said we do not have enough Doctors? We have more than enough. You can quote me. There is nothing wrong in them travelling out. When they go abroad, they earn money and send them back home here. Yes, we have foreign exchange earnings from them, and not just oil.”

When asked if he was sure of what he was saying, the Minister said that it is good for Doctors to travel out, as they would receive training from abroad, and open up centres in Nigeria.

“Will you call that brain drain? I know a couple of them who practise abroad, but set up Medical Centres back home. They have CAT scan, MRI scan, which even the government cannot maintain. So, I do not see any loss”, he said.

When asked if brain drain was not hurting the Health sector, he said: “Brain drain will only be inimical, when for instance Neurosurgeons travel, and we do not have Neurosurgeons here.”
