Welcoming the medical experts to Nigeria

United States (U.S.)-based Nigerian medical professionals are pooling resources together to establish in the country four specialist hospitals for cancer care, kidney dialysis, HIV/AIDS care, trauma and organ transplant. The130 expatriate Nigerian doctors , under the aegis of American Hospital Corporation, have already raised N7.8 billion (US$60 million) towards the project, while the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and its joint venture partners have pledged to contribute the balance.

This is a gesture of uncommon significance. There is hardly a more auspicious way to demonstrate patriotism   than what these professionals have chosen to do. They are evidently touched by the pitiable state of health care and are committed to ameliorating the situation.  All Nigerians, especially Government and its agencies, must do all that is necessary to facilitate their undertaking, including the assurance of security.
