5,000 Nigerian doctors are in S-Africa— Envoy

By Victoria Ojeme

The Consul-General of Nigeria in South Africa, Godwin Adama, has said about 5,000 Nigerian medical practitioners were contributing to the development of the health sector in South Africa.

Adama, who made this known when Nigerian Doctors’ Forum South Africa, led by its Secretary-General, Emeka Ugwu, visited him at Nigerian Consulate in Johannesburg, said the medical practitioners were in various teaching, public and private hospitals in South Africa.

He said:  “This shows that virtually every hospital in South Africa has a sizeable number of Nigerian doctors, and this includes teaching, public and private hospitals.

“What this means is that Nigerian doctors and other professionals are constantly adding value to the system and this cannot be over-emphasised.

“South Africa is replete with many Nigerian professionals who are contributing to the economic development in both public and private sectors in the country.

“Unfortunately, this has been either not reported at all or grossly under-reported.  It is in this light that Nigerian professionals in South Africa have determined that they will no longer sit by and allow their numerous contributions undermined and eroded by negative publicity.’’
