It is abroad doctors who are already well paid that you are trying to poach and reward with your useless devalued naira-Dr Olufunmilayo tackles Minister of Communications over plans to make foreign based doctors diagnose/treat patients online

It is the already highly paid foreign doctors that you are trying to rob and reward with your worthless and devalued naira – Dr. Olufunmilayo addresses the Minister of Communications on plans to have foreign doctors diagnose/treat patients online

Social media influencer and doctor, Harvey Olufunmilayo has criticized the Minister of Communication, Innovation and Digital Economy, Dr. Bosun Tijani, over a plan by the FG to engage in Telemedicine.

It all started after Dr. Bosun (pictured top right) posted a tweet asking Nigerian doctors based abroad what they thought about a technology platform they could use to treat Nigerians.

Dr. Olufunmilayo did not believe in the idea. He called it a very foolish idea that would not solve any current problems in the health sector in Nigeria. He opined that no foreign medical personnel would have time to virtually diagnose Nigerian patients as payment (in Naira) would be “useless”.

He told the Minister to focus on revitalizing the primary healthcare sector and creating a digital database for Nigerian patients.
