    A pharmacist is suppose to be the head not a medical doctor

    Now we are doing what we should. We need more pharmacists in politics

  4. The best we have ever had has been a pharmacist as the NAFDAC chairman in the person of Dora Akunyili not a medical doctor. Medical doctors are supposed to diagnose and treat patients not to propound drugs. How can he (medical doctor) regulate what he doesn’t know or have studied in school. That is misplacement of priority. Now, the health ministry will have a little more boost. We expect more professionals to man their Professional departments or institutions not the other way round has it has hitherto been. This mentality that medical doctors must head every department must stop if we yarn to have medical tourism in Nigeria.
