Indeed Nigeria is a shameless country with a Useless and shameless federal government who completely are the worst hypocrites in the world!!!! What the hell are they congratulating the guy for?so that he will come back to this God forsaken country or what??? How many times have they recognised the efforts of Nigerian doctors here in Nigeria? Instead they frustrate them, force them to go to strike and eventually leave this country for good and now they have the impetus to praise a USA based doctor because they want to feel important!!! Useless bunch of bastards! That's exactly what you get when you have an illiterate leading bunch of stupid people who called themselves intellectuals!!! Brain drain has been happening ever since and instead of the government to support science and technology and use it as tool for development and growth, they wanna force everybody into agricultural activities while they sit on their political thrones and CHOP money, bastards!!!!

Corruption has grounded our health sector. If this dude didn't find his way out of this country, he would have just been a malaria treating doctor. This country is just pathetic.

May God punish the folks behind our moans in Nigeria. May God further punish the issuers of this statement for congratulating a man in diaspora for what he could have been happy to do in Nigeria should they have created an enabling atmosphere to thrive.
Further may they end their sojourn here on earth in bitterness as they make Nigerians in diaspora unhappy on a regular basis. May th tears of every youth that has to do despicable things to survive outchea viz a viz take care of loved ones at home cause these people further ruining our lives, economy and image to dive into sorrow and misfortunes.
May the fruits of their kids go bad in their mouths. Amen

Shameless FG! The doctor achieved that because he is in an environment that is conducive, a health care that is working, where equipments are made available. Why can't you FG think of improving Nigeria health care .? And for the fools who think Nigerian doctors don't know what they are doing, can u see it now.He is a graduate of a Nigerian University. You better start appreciating the doctors in Nigeria who perform surgery with cell phone light and rechargeable lantern.
