Dr. Osagie Ehanire revealed this recently in Abuja after inspecting work on the new cancer centre at the National Hospital, Abuja.
According to him, he has heard the challenge of doctors leaving the country and he plans to provide better funding for our hospitals to prevent future occurrence.
He added that once our medical system is quality enough for the professionals, migrating out of the country to do their jobs would be unattractive.
His words, “I have heard the challenge of doctors leaving the country. We have plans to provide better funding for our hospitals in Nigeria and make such migration unattractive,”
“Schools are resuming, people are traveling in and out the country so we must be prepared for any emergency.”
