Make Nigeria Medical Tourists Destination, FG tells UK-based Healthcare Workers

The Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has called on diasporans to make Nigeria a medical tourist destination.

Dabiri-Erewa made the call at the 25th anniversary gala night of a United Kingdom-based Diaspora group, the Nigerian Nurses Charitable Association in the UK.


Dabiri-Erewa, according to a statement signed by the NiDCOM spokesperson, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, on Monday, commended the nurses and midwives for their charitable deeds and urged them to continue giving back to society.

She expressed optimism that “Nigerian healthcare practitioners in the Diaspora, working with their counterparts in Nigeria, can make Nigeria a medical tourist destination.”


The chairman, who further stated that President Bola Tinubu’s administration was committed to improving healthcare facilities and practice in Nigeria, called for more collaboration by establishing partnerships for knowledge exchange, telemedicine initiatives, and skills transfer programmes.

The President of the Association, Wendy Olayiwola, noted that they would continue to contribute their expertise through their collaborations with medical institutions back in Nigeria, stressing the need to create more platforms for networking and communication to foster a collaborative environment for sharing insights and best Practices.
