The federal government will stop the mass exodus of medical personnel, particularly medical doctors, to foreign countries, Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Dr Adeleke Mamora has said.

Mamora said this when a delegation of the Nigeria Medical Association (MNA), led by its President, Dr Uche Ojinmah, paid a courtesy visit to him in his office in Abuja on Thursday.

The minister stated that the federal government would do everything necessary to stem the tide of the mass exodus of medical personnel, especially doctors in the country.

To this end, Dr Adeleke said that government would look into conditions of service of health workers with respect to their working tools and remuneration so as to encourage health workers, particularly doctors, in their profession.

He promised to defend the interest of doctors and health workers because of their importance to humanity.

He enjoined the association to maintain a high level of integrity and conduct in line with its oath of the profession.

Earlier, the President of NMA said that they came to felicitate the minister on his new appointment as the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation.

He also requested the minister to discuss some of the association’s challenges such as the condition of service, working tools and remuneration at the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting on the association’s behalf.
