Will this law ever see the light of day?
Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu According to the Vanguard News report published earlier yesterday ,the Minister said that he is preparing a memo for the Federal Executive Council, which will stop public officers from wasting public funds on foreign medical trips.
The only exception, according to him, will be a situation where the capacity to handle such a medical problem does not exist in Nigeria.
He added that he was preparing a memo which will soon be presented to the council to stop public officers from foreign medical treatment and that if the public officer insists that he doesn’t want treatment in Nigeria, he will not be permitted to use public funds for that so long as it can be done in Nigeria.
I think there are more important issues to be dealt with than this: like dealing with issues why Doctors in Lagos are on strike and providing better quality health care. My peeps don’t you agree?
