  1. President Jonathan should be informed that the professional subjugation of Medical Lab scientists by Medical doctors have been an age-long issue. I strongly believe that medical profession din not originate from Nigeria. Hence we do not need committees or subcommittees to fashion the way forward. We have good and better examples to follow from the developed world like America and UK. Health care system in Nigeria need better attention not politicking. ODEMUYIWA ALBERT (FIMLS,PGD HIV/AIDS, MPA)
