This is coming amid the ongoing strike embarked on by the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD).

When the minister was asked if the country’s healthcare sector is good enough to discourage Nigerians from travelling overseas, he admitted that while the sector is not perfect, the federal government has done its part “well”.

“I haven’t said everything is perfect. I have said that viz-a-viz what we have on ground and the political situation we have, what we are practising — a federation — where health is on the concurrent list, the federal government has exercised its own function well, for me,” he said.

Asked if there is no need for Nigerians to travel abroad, based on his reference to the federal government’s achievements in the health sector, he said: “Why? What are you going to do abroad? Expertise is here.”

Ngige further said “On a good note, on an average note, on a comparative note, medical treatment here is fairly okay as far as I’m concerned. Yes, at least if you visit federal medical centres,”
