Disclosing this in Ibadan while briefing journalists on the activities of his ministry in the last one year, the state Commissioner for Health, Dr Babalola Owolabi, expressed concern that a large number of quacks have infiltrated the private health sector in the state.

The commissioner remarked that this ugly phenomenon has contributed to the gradual decline in the sector as people continue to patronise the quacks who parade themselves as trained medical doctors.

He lamented that the quacks have done a lot of havoc to unsuspecting victims saying that about 55 percent of the population of the state recognise private sector as their health facilities providers due to easy access.

“What our people have failed to know is that the quacks are just all out to kill and not to save them from untimely death or permanent disability,” the commissioner stated.

He however enumerated the factors militating against the total eradication of quacks in the health sector in the state just as he pleaded with newsmen to join hands with the authorities to figh the menace to a standstill.

He declared, “We can no longer tolerate quacks anymore in this state. Anywhere they are found, they should be exposed as this will minimise, if not, put an end to their nefarious activities.  The quacks have been causing untimely deaths and bringing sorrow to the affected families.”

The commissioner also decried the high rate of abortion being carried out mostly by the quacks in the state in recent time saying, “abortion is criminal and our people should stop patronising these agents of death.”
