Quote of the Month!!

At the formal inauguration of Alliance Hospital in Abuja earlier this month, Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, blamed doctors for part of the crisis in the nation’s health sector.

Oshiomhole said, “(Nigerian) doctors spend more time on strike than they spend in the theatre, every excuse is always settled with a strike." (Please permit me to laugh at this comment).

He added, “Many things have to change; it is not just a factor of equipment. If the human factor and orientation is inappropriate, facilities and equipment cannot translate into good health outcomes. There is a need to get doctors to reinvent their Hippocratic Oath. It is unacceptable that Nigerian doctors go on strike over minor issues.”

He also called for an overhaul of the reward system in the public service, saying hard work and excellence should be rewarded; and lazy doctors should not earn as much as excellent and competent doctors.

Do you agree with him?
