People Talk: On NYSC doctors replacing striking doctors in public hospitals

“What kind of policy is that? Is the FG trying to bastardise the Health sector and toy with people’s lives? The Health sector is very sensitive and delicate and requires proficiency and professionalism; therefore, it should be carefully handled.

“Qualified and experienced hands should be in place instead of NYSC members.” —Oyegunle Nurudeen, Floor Manager

“What experience do NYSC members have to qualify them to handle sensitive medical cases? How can you bring ill-experienced hands to do the job?

“If the FG insists, then there must be a law that prohibits Nigerian leaders from seeking medical treatment abroad. Everyone must receive treatment from the so-called NYSC doctors.” —Henry Osigwe, Sculptor
