The victory of the Medical Laboratory Council of Nigeria over the Medical Council of Nigeria (MDCN) has started gaining public support following the publication of the judgement recently in Nigerian dailies.
The support is coming from Mr. Moses Ogunleye, a Town Planner who submitted as follows
'I am a Town Planner and I have followed the case between Medical Doctors and MLSCN on who can practice the profession of Medical Laboratory Science. The judgment of the National Industrial Court of January 27, 2016 has cleared it all. I m surprised that in this age of high grade of specialization, Medical Doctors will still see themselves as 'master of all" or as 'first among equals'. I am very pleased that the Council decided to take the matter up in the Court. I also congratulate the Council for making all professional Medical Laboratory Scientists proud. I thank you also for publishing the judgment in The Guardian of February 19,2016,otherwise I would not be aware of the outcome. God bless all the professionals in Nigeria.'
