Lagos Doctors Leaving For Saudi, Israel — Investigation

Doctors are leaving the employ of the Lagos State Government for what they consider better opportunities in Saudi Arabia, Israel and some Asian countries, according to investigations.

One of the new employees who spoke on condition of anonymity in Lagos on Monday said no fewer than 30 doctors working in state-owned hospitals would be taking up appointments in Saudi Arabia this month alone.

The doctor, at present, a medical officer in one of the general hospitals in the state, said the appointments were facilitated by an agency that recruits doctors for hospitals in Saudi Arabia. He disclosed that not less than 60 doctors, including consultants, attended the interview that was conducted at a popular hotel in Victoria Island last December.

 According to him, physicians in the lowest cadre would be receiving N450,000 per month, excluding other allowances which cover the tuition and upkeep of two children in any school in Saudi Arabia or abroad. “We were about 60, including our consultants who attended the interview, but I know about 30 that have been shortlisted. It was a colleague of mine who was leaving for Israel that told me to register with the online job placement firm.
