Health Minister Osagie Ohanire

Nigeria’s Health Minister, Osagie Ohanire has revealed that the federal Government didn’t invite the Chinese Doctor to Nigeria.

Recall that the entrance of the Chinese Doctors have caused a lot of uproar, especially in the health sector.

Nigerian doctors protested their coming, saying that their presence somehow doubted their competency in handling the virus.

Regardless of their protests, few days ago, the Chinese Doctors arrived in Nigeria and are currently under isolation.

Meanwhile the Health Minister has revealed that the federal government had nothing to do with the Chinese Doctors coming to Nigeria.

The Minister who made the clarification while appearing on Channels TV’s News at 10,

stated further that the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) brought in the doctors to help the FG.

Osagie also disclosed that the doctors are currently in isolation

and they will soon start a video conferencing with them to learn from their experience.

He said;

“I think in the first place we didn’t bring them in,

and I think China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) in its wisdom

and probably in its corporate social responsibility thought they should bring people in to come and help us and give advice,” Ehanire said.

“We didn’t issue an invitation, but we are not unhappy that they are here

because we can learn from their experience.

“These people have been through it, and we want to start with a video conferencing with them

even while they are isolated so that we can try to learn from their experiences.

“There is nothing better than learning from someone who has actually suffered an event and been inflicted with an injury.”
