Pharmacists are leaving Nigeria at an alarming rate. This is a matter of concern says the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria, PSN, Osun State chapter.

Speaking to journalists in Osogbo, the Osun State PSN Chairman, Professor Moses Akanmu said pharmacists from different fields now prefer to seek greener pastures abroad than practice in Nigeria.

He lamented, “Many pharmacists are leaving the country. Academic pharmacists, industrial pharmacists, hospital and administration and community pharmacists, people are leaving. In the teaching hospitals, state ministries, pharmacists are leaving.

“I want to use this medium to call for the employment of more pharmacists in the local government, hospital management boards and the ministry of health to replace those that have relocated, retired or died.”
