President Buhari laments brain-drain in health sector

President Muhammadu Buhari has lamented the human resources needs of Nigeria’s healthcare system saying the mass exodus of doctors from Nigeria is real and worrisome.

The President who was represented by The Minister Of Health, Osagie Enahire, stated this at the second National Health Summit organised by the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) in Abuja themed “Patient-Centred Care” noted that the Federal government is interested in opening up conversations with medical practitioners to address the situation.

Meanwhile the NMA President, Francis Faduyile, stressed during the summit that the exit of doctors from Nigeria is not totally negative as the country’s economy and the people alike benefit from the activities and investments of Nigerian doctors practicing abroad.
