The recent bill that passed for second reading at the green chambers, stopping Nigerian-trained Doctors from leaving the country until after five years of practice, some residents in Jos have expressed their displeasure over the development.
Speaking with our correspondent, some citizens described as unfair, the move to restrict trained medical Doctors and Dentists from practicing wherever they chose to.
Timzing Miri-Dash and Ezekiel Teme whose views were captured in this report are presented thus:
You’ll recall that the bill was sponsored by, Honourable Ganiyu Johnson, APC/Lagos and has continued to generate huge outrage from various quarters.
Still in the home of peace and tourism, Chairman of the Arewa Christian and indigenous pastors Association of Nigeria, ACIPAN, Reverend Luka Shehu has described Ambassador Yahaya Kwande as a promoter of peace, social justice and rule of law in the country.
He made the assertion while presenting an award of excellence to Ambassador Kwande for his support to the Christian community at his residence in Jos.
Reverend Shehu also congratulated Ambassador Kwande and his wife, Mrs. Esther Kwande who despite their difference in faith believe have lived together for 53 years, promoting peace and love in Northern Nigeria.
Appreciating ACIPAN for the award, Ambassador Kwande acknowledged that he is a child of God pointing at his inter/faith marriage as a major example and his commitment to tolerance.
