OYOGist.com has learned that the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has vowed that its members will not cooperate with Chinese physicians in Nigeria.
Doctors dispatched Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport to Abuja on Wednesday to assist the country in the fight against Coronavirus. So far, 276 people have been infected in Nigeria.
President of the Nigerian Medical Association, Francis Faduyile, in an interview with the press, said there is a well-known rule that all doctors from abroad must complete a medical examination in Nigeria.
The theory is that he wrote the test of the Medical Council of Nigeria MDCN and won before it could operate in Nigeria.
He said this despite the federal government’s assurances that the doctors were not practicing medicine, but that they came to develop equipment and more.
He said: “Nothing Chinese doctors can do is violate anything.” The Nigerian doctors are doing their best. ”
“We have made it clear that we do not need these Chinas at this time. We have heard that the health minister, Dr. OSagie Ehanire, said they would be detained for 14 days before being allowed to begin treatment for people with COVID-19.”
“Before they can practice in Nigeria, they must take our tests. If they do, they can help us. But if they don’t, we won’t have a relationship with them.
He thanked China for its medical assistance to Nigeria.
