6:01 AM

A delegate representing the Nigeria Medical Association, NMA, at the ongoing National Conference, Osahon Enabulele has demanded that Nigerian leaders should undergo mental and medical fitness tests to determine if they can occupy public offices.

Osahon Enabulele who said Nigeria loses $800 million on account of foreign medical care also told the conference that Nigeria was losing about $800 million on account of foreign medical care.

While discussing President Goodluck Jonathan's March 17 speech to the Conference, on Wednesday, Mr. Enabulele, who is also the National President of the NMA, said giving the leadership problem Nigeria is facing, it becomes necessary to look at the medical and mental fitness of its political leaders.

According to him, political leaders should produce their certificates of fitness while taking their oaths of office.

"A time has come for us to look at the mental and medical fitness of our political leaders," he said. "When they are taken oath of office, it should be ensured that they also produce a certificate of mental fitness."

He regretted that the nation loses a whopping $800 million on account of foreign medical care sought by Nigerians, although he did not state the source of his record and what timespan it covers.

The NMA President questioned the commitment of Nigerian leaders to the health of its citizen, adding that there was no health right entrenched in the Constitution.

He proposed a massive health policy that would cater for the health needs of the rural dwellers.

Mr. Enabulele, who stated that the president's speech was the best he ever delivered, however, asked the Conference to look into the rising cost of governance in the country.
