Street Doctor

The latest episode of the entertaining TV Drama Series, Professor Johnbull, draws attention to the activities of orthodox medicine practitioners, their "one-drug-cures-all" tendency and the attendant effects on public health.

Entitled Street Doctors, the episode exposes the threat such quack medical practitioners pose to the nation's public health orientation, and calls on all to make conscious efforts to patronise only registered and government approved health facilities. It also urges pharmaceutical personnel to dispense only medications duly prescribed by doctors.

While not totally doubting the efficacy of orthodox medicine or the relevance of the practice in modern day Nigeria, Street Doctors propose that it is foolhardy for anyone to believe that there is a "one-stop drug" which cures all ailments including "curiosity", as claimed by the peddlers of such wonder drugs.
