#Ministerialscreening: Senate screen Dr. Osagie Ehanire

Osagie Ehanire, a German trained surgeon from Edo state has been screened. During his presentation, he said the lack of confidence in Nigeria's medical sector has resulted in most Nigerians going abroad for medical attention. According to him, there needs to be training and retraining of medical personnel. He called for the fight of corruption to be taken to the health care sector in Nigeria.

On wrong medical diagnosis which has led to death of many Nigerians, the ministerial nominee called for better curriculum in schools as well medical personnel consulting each other in serious cases.

According to him, one of the problems in the health sectors is the non inclusion of young medical doctors in the scheme of things. He called on government to adhere to any agreement reached with medical workers so as to avoid incessant strike actions. He acknowledged that maternal and infant mortality have increased in Nigeria. He said a combination of non availability of adequate health facility and staff as well as non affordability of medical services have all increased the rate of infant and maternal mortality. Ehanire said it is unethical for public doctors to run a private practice. He was asked to take a bow and go.

Ehanire is the older brother of Sen. Daisy Danjuma (nee Ehanire)
