Bill Seeking Mandatory 5 years stay in Nigeria for Qualified Medical Doctors: Sen Oloriegbe’s tweet reaches over 600K audience


The Twitter opinion thread of the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Health and Senator Representing Kwara Central, Dr Ibrahim Yahaya Oloriegbe has reached over 600,000 Twitter audiences across the world.

Sen Oloriegbe through the thread on his handle, @Official_IYO, had expressed his reservations on the contents of the Bill sponsored by Hon. Ganiyu Abiodun Johson of the Green Chambers of the National Assembly who proposed “an Act to Amend the Medical Doctors and Dental Practitioners Act, Cap. M379, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004 to mandate any Nigeria-trained medical or dental practitioner to practice in Nigeria for a minimum of five (5) years before being granted a full license by the Council to make quality health services available to Nigeria; and for related matters (HB.2130),” noting that, “it is not strong enough to curb the menace of brain drain which the proposal aims to curtail.”

Just Event Online TV has been monitoring the thread on Twitter made by Sen Oloriegbe on Saturday to sensitize Nigerians on the legislative proposal which passed Second Reading last Thursday, 6th April 2023. And it was observed that in less than 48hrs thus far, it has reached a wider audience to the tune of 600,000 and more, whilst garnering reactions and comments in thousands.

The engagements on Twitter regarding the topic had shown that Sen Oloriegbe spoke the minds of millions of Nigerians who are of the view that the proposal by the Lower Chambers’ member representing Oshodi Isolo II Federal Constituency should not be allowed to scale through.
