The Ekiti state ministry of health and human services said it has concluded plans to partner the Nigeria police force to checkmate all the medical quacks in the state.
The commissioner for health and human services Dr Mojisola Yaya- Kolade made this known in Ado Ekiti when she led the state committee on medical quackery set up by Ekiti state government on a courtesy visit on the office of the commissioner of police, Ekiti state command, Amba Asuquo.
Yaya-Kolade echoed that Dr. Kayode Fayemi government will not spare any quack doctor caught practicing in Ekiti state.
“Ekiti state is not where you can practice medicine without authentic certificate because the lives of every Ekiti resident is precious to us and we can’t afford to loose any to the so called quacks. She said.
Responding, the commissioner of police,Amba Asuquo lauded the efforts of Ekiti state government in identifying and checkmating quacks that parade themselves as doctors.
“We are ready to work closely with the health ministry to prosecute any one caught engaging in medical practice without authorization. They hide under medical practice to kill people of Ekiti and we can’t continue to watch them again. Enough is enough. He said.
