Doctors, health workers supremacy battle deepens

The supremacy clash between the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) and the Joint Health Workers Union of Nigeria (JOHESU) took a new turn on Sunday.

The Nation

NMA accused JOHESU of envy and asked the members of the health workers union to go to medical school, if they want to be recognised as medical practitioners.

NMA described the outburst of some JOHESU members on the proposed repeal and reenactment of the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) Bill, and four other bills, before the National Assembly, as paranoid and borne out of envy.

JOHESU National Chairman, Comrade Biobelemoye Josiah, had urged the National Assembly to step down the MDCN bill to forestall a fresh crisis in the health sector.

According to him, the document is not in the country’s interest.
