State with the highest number of fake doctors revealed by Nigeria Medical Association #CAPondaRUN

The association called for a collaborative effort of stakeholders in order to stamp out quacks and charlatans The NMA in Ogun state has revealed some sad news.

The state with the highest number of quack doctors in Nigeria has been revealed , The announcement was made by the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) on Tuesday, August 1 2017.


The chairman of the association in the state, Abayomi Olajide says the state has the highest number of quacks in the country. He said this on Tuesday, August 1 2017, at the group’s Annual General Meeting and Scientific Conference in Abeokuta. The theme of the conference was aptly: “Anti-quackery: A seemingly unending battle.’’ Olajide expressed sadness that in spite of the rigorous campaign against quackery, it had flourished in the state. He went ahead to accuse members of the association of engaging quacks, 

Saying: “The war started in Lagos where many facilities were shut down and people started moving toward Ogun State. “Perhaps, we (Ogun) should be ranked highest nationally as the state that harbours quacks. Maybe, it is because of our proximity to Lagos. “From what we have seen, there are a lot of them that are thriving within the society."

According to NAN, he acknowledged that the state government had made some efforts through its monitoring team. 

In his contribution, Theophilus Ogunlesi, Emeritus Professor of Medicine, represented by Olusegun Feyisetan said that the war against quacks ought to have been won a long time ago. However, governments and stakeholders did not approach it with serious intent and called for a radical approach by ensuring “critical reappraisal and screening of NMA members to battle quacks.’’ 

Adegboyega Ogunwale, a consultant Psychiatrist at the Neuropsychiatric Hospital, Aro, Abeokuta, blamed the resurgence of quacks on poor licence strategy, ignorance, poverty, illiteracy, lack of monitoring team and poor facilities.  While, Rotimi Ogungbe, a consultant on Health to the Ogun government, assured medical practitioners of government’s commitment to the fight against quackery. 

In conclusion, he challenged the association to “name and shame” quacks among its members and also ensure that medical practitioners improve on quality of service delivery.

Olaitan said that before the college was set up in 1979, the federal government usually sent doctors abroad for training.
