Dr. Enabulele Slams President Buhari for Travelling Abroad

Vice-President of the Commonwealth Medical Association and former National President of the  Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), Dr Osahon Enabulele, recently criticized President Muhammadu Buhari over his medical trip to London for an ear infection.

Dr Enabulele said it was a "national shame" that Mr Buhari went to the UK for treatment when Nigeria had more than 250 ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialists, as well as a National Ear Centre.

Mr Buhari should lead by example by using Nigerian doctors and facilities, and ensure government officials do not go abroad on "frivolous" medical trips, he added.

The UK had more than 3,000 Nigerian-trained doctors, and the US more than 5,000, Dr Enabule said, accusing the government of failing to address the brain drain by improving working conditions and health centres.

Mr Buhari, in a speech delivered on his behalf to the Nigeria Medical Association in April, said the government's hard-earned cash would not be spent on treating officials overseas, especially when Nigeria had the expertise.

I guess what's good for the goose is not good enough for the gander!
