The Rivers State branch of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) said it had uncovered 25 fake doctors operating in the state. Its Chairman, Dr Ibitroekeme Korubo, told newsmen in Port Harcourt on Friday that the fake doctors were detected by the association’s task force against quackery.
He said it was unfortunate that some persons would decide to operate as doctors without possessing the necessary qualification.
``It is really bad. We are talking about human life here; so it is worrisome that someone that is not qualified will want to venture into the profession. We have gone to the hospitals where they work, we have told their employers to produce them for necessary action,’’ he said.
