90% Of New Doctors In The UK Are Doctors From Nigeria – Ajayi Crowther University VC Raises Alarm On Impending Calamity In Nigeria’s Health Sector

Ajayi Crowther University Vice Chancellor Professor Dapo Folorunsho Asaju has alerted of an impending calamity in the Nigeria health sector following exodus of Nigeria-trained doctors into the United Kingdom.

He noted that his recent visit to the United Kingdom indicated that ninety percent of those writing examinations to practice medicine in the United Kingdom are doctors from Nigeria.

Professor Asaju who raised the alarm while presenting the 74th Interdisciplinary discourse of the University of Ibadan, Postgraduate school entitled “Religious undercurrents in the evolution of education in Global context” stated that it is sad that the federal government of Nigeria seemed unperturbed by the massive brain drain which will make many Nigerians die in the absence of qualified medical doctors.

The professor of Christian theology who noted that while religion has been deployed by the elites as a divisive tool in Nigeria, education without religion moral teachings is responsible for increasing social vices and terrorism.

He noted that is sad that institutions are producing graduates only in paper qualification and not on sound morals which will impact the society.

He noted that while universities are happy producing first class holders, the production of first class brain without character will amount to the production of ‘clever devils’.

He said “People have been crying of brain drain and it appears that Nigeria is not even mindful of the implications of what is happening. My son-in-law who went to write examination to be able to practice medicine in the UK and engineer told me that of all those who came for this examination, 90 percent were doctors from Nigeria. This is crisis.

When you have put in your very best , you train so many people, you have invested in them only for them to get their certificates and we abandon the sick people who are dying in this country to treat those who are already well. It is a calamity. Woe unto a nation whose best would desert her shores to go abroad for the sake of pound sterling or dollar to live life of affluence abandoning people who are so much in need of their expertise, those who invested everything to make them who they are. There is another crisis of morals. We have first class brain who are empty in terms of morals. If our universities continue to produce first class student’s brains without character, they would have succeeded in producing a bunch of clever devils. That is why we have very brilliant people but they have no character. They carry first class degrees from universities but put them in places of work they don’t have the minute of discipline of punctuality, probity, accountability, or have integrity. It is now very difficult to find good workers in Nigeria.”

In his remarks, the Vice Chancellor University of Ibadan, Professor Idowu Olayinka said Nigeria must determine the place of religion in its educational system given the confusion and controversies surrounding the role religion play in our communal life.

The UI chief executive said “it is true that Nigeria educational policy makers in their wisdom, believe that students can learn everything they need to learn without learning anything about religion. Nevertheless, this has continually fueled the culture wars that now divide many of our communities and undermine educational mission of our schools”.

    Blame your constituencies elected legislooters.
    They have all the power to change and improve things but all they fight for is their own pockets so that they can use part of the looted fund to seek education and medical care for themselves and family members abroad.

    There is a native saying …. ” hungry man no dey hear preaching” . There is need to have a wholistic approach on the matter which will address both morals and duties. If economy is bad and one is watching their family and community people suffer from lack of amenities and care, greener pastures will have a strong pull on such people. No amount of good intentions can keep you home when you cannot put food on the table and care for your folks.
    Yes there should be a policy change to address the issue. Good observation from the author. Kudos!!!
