Udoh stated that the Federal and state governments should address the issue of health workers’ migration through appropriate policy and mutual bilateral relationship with affected countries. He said that the project was a culmination of concerns from Africa and some developing countries about the trend of loss of trained health workers moving from Africa to developed countries, a situation which he said needed to be stopped. On her part, Cross River State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Inyang Asibong, identified the migration of the health workforce as a complex issue created by source countries due to poor management, insufficient remuneration, low motivation and uneven performance of health workers.
So, if the budget is cleaned up this night and sent to him, he will sign it as soon as possible. That I know very well.” Further probe into the matter revealed that the N500 million diversion of funds to constituency projects is “what is giving the president headache.” A lawmaker, who is not a member of the review committee but a member of the standing committee on appropriation, told Vanguard in confidence that the “President wants a situation where the insertions should be reduced to about N50 million before he will sign the budget.” The reviewed copy, which was sent yesterday morning did not cut substantially from the N500 million.

While Senate President, Saraki wants the CCT Chairman, Danladi to step down from presiding over his (Saraki) trial, the latter argues that the former’s request lacks merit as long as Saraki presides over the Senate. Saraki’s Counsel based his demand on the fact that Danladi has a case to answer with the EFCC, whereas Saraki himself, does not only have case with EFCC, but is also under trial and at the same time presiding over the Senate of the Federal Republic.
He who comes to equity must do so with clean hands. Both parties seemingly have their hands not only tainted but soiled with indictment by competent Institution of the land. It therefore follows that Saraki would succeed in unseating the CCT Chairman, only if he himself steps aside from the Senate President. This development is an interesting one as it brings to test of the strength of Nigerian Institutions: as The CCT and The Senate (as well the National Assembly) with all their ‘sacredness’, ‘sanctity’ and ‘hallowedness’. No wonder while one of the world leaders recently said that the bane of Africa’s development is the entrenchment of strong personalities and establishment of weak Institutions. It is abnormal for strong personalities to
triumph over weakened institutions. This is why we, in Africa have a long way to go.
If there is any change Nigerians need in our society this time around, it is such change that would start with strengthening of our National Institutions such that rule of law will be given the pride of place where no citizen is above the law. Can Nigerians rightly expect President Buhari to bring this product in his ‘change basket’?
