B) Any exam that targets Doctors & Nurses should be banned both online and offline. And severe consequences imposed on vendors of these exams.

E) Impose a “License Retention Fee” in Medical Practise that Nigerian trained Doctors/Nurses must pay a License Holding Fee of N3.5m before leaving the country.
Failure to Pay would mean they can never ever practise in Nigeria if/when they Return. This is very important.

FG, use your head.
