President Tinubu Begs Nigerian Doctors Abroad To Return Home And Serve Nigerians

President Bola Tinubu has urged Nigerian medical practitioners in the diaspora to return home and serve Nigerians, contribute to the development of Nigeria’s medical sector, and provide medical care to Nigerians.

The President made the call at the unveiling of Nigeria’s Health Sector Renewal Investment Initiative at the State House, Abuja, on Tuesday, December 12.

Describing health as a fundamental human right, President Tinubu announced plans for a comprehensive revamp of physical infrastructure, and equipment and the re-training of frontline health workers starting in 2024.

The President boasted that Nigeria remained a rallying point for the best minds in the medical profession, prompting his administration to allocate a substantial sum for the sector in the 2024 budget currently before the National Assembly. He went on to beg Nigerian medical practitioners in the diaspora to return home to serve their people.

“We encourage those Nigerian health professionals in the Diaspora, just like Professor Ali Pate and Tunji Alausa have done, to sacrifice their time to come back home and serve their people. Consider your contributions here at home; as we say, ‘Charity begins at home’.

For the developed countries who benefited from the amazing talents of Nigerian health workers, we’ll really encourage them to consider how to support the expansion of training facilities in Nigeria to replace those that they have recruited from here. You should also look at the short- and long-term opportunities that we offer.”

Yes, we have a vibrant, well-educated society, but we need Nigeria to rise on one side with climate change and cause the health system to decay. We will rise,” the president said.
