Tigerian Medical Association, Medical and Dental Consultants Association of Nigeria (MDCAN), Association of Medical Doctors in the Academics and the striking National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD), among others have been called by some concerned Nigerians, following the news and video about recruitment of its personnel by the Saudi Arabian authority.
In a video seen by Okanga Trumpeters, overwhelming number of Nigerian medical experts were seen during the physical recruitment exercise held in Sharaton Hotel Abuja, Nigeria by Saudi authority.
In a video posted by Objectv Media, some medical doctors vented their annoyance and disappointment with the Nigerian Government, admitting lack of concern and care for their welfare. They said they have to apply for jobs overseas because their basic needs here are not provided.
Resident Doctors in Nigeria have been on strike for more than a month and sadly series of negotiations with the Federal Government have yielded no result. speaking during the recruitment by Saudi authority, one of the striking doctors said “It is sad that the government is not even doing anything about it. And you can imagine my Honorable Minister of health came out and he threatened us” – the speaker alleged
“It doesn’t make sense and it worsen the whole situation. To be candid, we are very very disappointed, I personally, am very disappointed” .
Speaking further, he said he work in a very critical department in a hospital and many a time, he would use his personal money to purchase some of the things the hospital may need, just for sake of the patients.
Another doctor, who remained anonymous said he was applying for the Saudi job to escape the ills of the Nigerian society. “A lot of discouraging things, you see banditry, you see kidnapping, incessant strike and among others. If someone can get a place where he can work, place that is calm and place where one can use his skills, is it not better to go there?”.
Vivian Okolo, who is a female medical doctor said “I left medical school April, 2011, and I’m surprised to see my teacher here too. You know what it means? my teacher that taught me how many years ago. I’m giving up on the country, on our leaders. This is the worst i have seen, i never knew it has gone this bad – She said

Edo Governor, Godwin Obaseki said this kicking off the second phase of the COVID-19 vaccination at the Government House, Benin on Monday.
Obaseki explained that the proposed measure was informed by the devastating effects of the third wave of the virus in the country.
He pointed out that the latest reports indicate that 96 percent of persons infected with Delta variant had not been vaccinated.
The governor said: “From what we have seen so far, the COVID-19 is here to stay. There may be other waves. We need to find a solution. That is why vaccination is very important.

This policy by the Governor however doesn’t sit well with people of the state and many other concerned Nigerians. In a publication he made on his official Facebook page, the Governor released venues where Vaccination takes place in the state.
Reactions that trailed the publication showed the people are against forceful vaccination in the South South state.
“so call health facilities? Mr governor, leave this vaccination matter. It will not work. You can not continue with the race anymore. It is already a failed plan”. – One of the comment said

You are now the WHO president abi? Twale. Use the analysis to build schools, create roads, empower youths. Charge your lap technicians, your doctors and nurses on research and development of the vaccine, instead of wasting Edo’s money on foreign medicines that are even a donation. What is really wrong with our leaders in this country?
Onaghinor Osa James said – “It’s a good development. But Sir vaccination is a right not a force. Prevention and awareness is what they need. Even here in advance countries where it was worst. People were not forced. People have their rights. Sir”
Engr Jimmy Coker EyeSpy replied – This is unconstitutional, it’s against human right and its oppression to force anyone to take the vaccine against their will, what Edo need is good roads, electricity, schools, security, etc. for over a year now Edo is without state assembly, local government chairmen or counselors, mass vaccination is the last thing we the Edo people are craving at the moment…this is not a good plan.
