Dr Mohammed Usman,   the Chief Medical Director of the  Federal Medical Centre (FMC) Bida,  on Sunday said that  people seeking medical treatments outside the country were the bane of  tye successes of healthcare policies  and operations in the country.

Usman, who was the guest speaker at the annual general meeting of the Kutigi Old Students Association (KUOSA) and election, said this while presenting a paper on  the theme “Medical Tourism, Matters  Arising” in Minna.

He said  that in order to reduce the tide of domestic and international medical tourism, Nigeria would have to change its healthcare policies  and patterns of operations.

“This change should accommodate the healthcare needs of Nigerians at lesser cost but on the right standard,” he said.
