Motivate doctors to slow down brain drain – NMA urges FG NMA90301

The Kogi State chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has called on the Federal Government to show more concern for young doctors in Nigeria and do all within its power to re-motivate them in order to slow down brain drain syndrome that has gripped the profession in the country.

The State NMA chairman, Dr Omakoji Simeon Oyeguh, disclosed this on Wednesday in Lokoja in his address to mark this year’s physicians’ week.

Oyeguh explained that the motivation of doctors by the Federal Government, particularly the Resident Doctors will serve the nation better.

The Kogi NMA therefore called on the Federal Government to deal with the issues in the Memoradum Of Understanding(MOU) that was signed with NMA very dispassionately, in order to re-motivate the Resident Doctors to do their work for the benefit of the nation.

“We are looking forward to the year ahead that will demonstrate an improved and more responsive Federal Government that will improve health care delivery in Nigeria; while strengthening the Health system, taming corruption and insecurity that have become twin devils in common place in the Nigeria polity that are about to consume our nation”, he said.

Dr Oyiguh added that the government should improve upon the work place of the physicians and ensure sufficient infrastructure requisite for their time to be in place to encourage practitioners to be happy doing their work in this underdeveloped economy ravaged by Covid-19.

The NMA therefore called on the Federal Ministry of Health to support the Managing Director of FMC, Lokoja, by creating a better environment where he can deliver more effective healthcare service to the people in the catchment area.

Equally, the NMA noted the efforts of Governor Yahaya Bello over the gigantic structure of the Reference Hospital, Okene, saying that the referral hospital is set to be completed and commissioned soon to address the health challenge of the needy.

The association stated that the body is looking forward to the government to develop capacity to employ and retain the appropriate cadre of healthcare professionals in their numbers in order to make the centre a world class hospital as intended and envisioned by the government.
