Anybody that attended UNILAG in the early 90s will know Professor Green Nwankwo. He is a Professor of Finance and a major player in the stock market. He was the Chairman of Union Bank and was on the board of several blue chip companies, yet he found time to teach his courses to under graduate and post graduate students.

Totally on point, (even though I must say that our people misbehave too much as well.). Integration, population and language should also be factored in, India followed by Nigeria are the most populous English speaking countries with massive incentive for such professionals to migrate to the UK, it is no coincidence that they've also had the most occurences of misdemeanours.

Let us not make ourselves out to be what we are not and delve deeper when some of these statistics are touted. Its the interpretation of the data that matters when you're looking for cause and effect.
Every society has its 'black sheeps' and I doubt the relative quantities of such deviants vary much in each society.

I cant deny that sometimes, I feel if I had not been a doctor life would have been much easier. I do not have to do calls. My sleep will not have to be interrupted by distress telephone calls. I do not have to leave my wife in a dash. I am condemned to have more than my own fair share of grieving, for every patient that dies in my unit is somehow connected to me. Gasp, and needle pricks!

But, I also shudder at what it would mean for patients if doctors walked away from medicine because of the frustrations. I still marvel at discovering the wonder of the human body. The honour of being trusted by my patient to give them advice, the gratitude the elderly ones especially show when helping them through their illness, their prayers and blessings. These things will remain unchanging. When I look at all these I still consider myself lucky and privileged to be placed to look after Gods creation.

True talk...I couldn't agree more. I called up Dr. Odoemina after going through that piece; just to thank him.

Doctors are really burning out faster than their peers because of undue stress and undue share of grief.

Some of the professors who taught me could not believe their kids refusal to read medicine.

We have that in all professions. I know a couple who are highly successful engineers with considerable network in the industry, but non of their kids studied engineering. One studied economics and the other read law.

We have lawyers, accountants, architects etc whose children refused to follow their parents' career path.

Why must you send him or her to medical school, let the child decide the course he or she thinks he has the aptitude and attitude for.

The news about a medical doctor who abandoned medicine to become an oil pipeline thief may have cast a pall on the prestige of what is supposed to be a noble profession. But a seeming loss of the prestige of medicine did not start today. You may have heard it before that many doctors regret reading medicine. For me, it was during my secondary school days. I had told a neighbour who was a doctor, who further endeared me to the profession, that I would want to read medicine, and I thought he would have been pleased. But I was taken aback when he said I should instead go into engineering or even banking like my dad. He said medicine was not worth the trouble. I felt his advice was suspicious. I also recall a visit to our family doctor then. When I told him my ambition, he said, Why medicine? Since I got into medical school I have not rested, even till now. In my young mind, I just concluded that some people would say anything to make sure others dont become like them.

This doctor lacks the right values. The guy obviously became a doctor, because of the money he thought he would make.
He has no excuse whatsoever to be an oil pipeline thief.

I am not a doctor, but have a couple to close friends who are consultants in the profession, and they seem to have a different view. When I read the piece, I called up a friend and he said the profession is his life, he would not have imagined seeing himself doing something else. He enjoyed the distress calls - it pumps up adrenaline for action. When he is not on call, he is bored. The only sad part is the sentimental attachment to deaths, which he sees as one action that completes life's cycle.
Different strokes for different folks. Four of his kids are also in the medical profession.

The medical profession is not respected in this country. You just have to cave a nitch for yourself to succeed. The likes of St. Nicolas, Reddington etc have done so.

Hahahaha...I laugh!! Well it depends on what you call "happiness". The Scandinavian countries have one of the highest suicide rates in the world. Having the best living conditions in terms of infrastructure and business opportunities does not necessarily translate to happiness. With harsh winter conditions and dark winter days, this report must be a joke!! You need to see a typical Scandinavian demeanour during winter.
