VP Urges Doctors to Stay and Help Build a Better Nigeria

Vice President Kashim Shettima has urged Nigerian doctors to remain in the country, stating that President Bola Tinubu loves them and values their contributions.

He made this call while hosting the National Executive Committee of the Nigerian Medical Association led by its newly elected leader Prof. Bala Audu at the presidential villa.

Vice President Shettima acknowledged the challenges faced by medical professionals in Nigeria, but emphasized the importance of their role in shaping the country’s future. He encouraged them to stay and work together to address the nation’s healthcare challenges and not leave to seek greater opportunities abroad.

Furthermore, he said, this is our country and the greatest black nation on earth, and a promising nation that we need to invest in. All hope is not lost because Nigerian doctors are making giant strides, recording milestones in the profession and, most importantly, making tremendous sacrifices to serve this nation.

” The NMA president, Prof Audu, said the body remains patriotic to this nation and will fully support the health policies of the government to drive improvement in quality healthcare delivery and universal access to services to all Nigerians.

This appeal comes amidst the challenges the nation is going through with many doctors seeking opportunities abroad due to economic difficulties.
