Abuja - The Medical and Dental Consultants’ Association of Nigeria (MDCAN) has
expressed concern over President Mohammed Buhari’s failure to form a
complete government one month after his assumption of power.
The association challenged the President to constitute his cabinet as any further delay was “dangerous.”
The President of the association, Dr Steve Oluwole, stated this in Abuja.
“It is obvious, we have concerns; we are not isolated, we are not the only ones affected, there are certain issues that we want to raise or oppose but we can’t do. But we cannot say because it is a new government coming in. Even if it is another party that takes over things move within hours, so we can’t say because it is a new party and government that is why it is so,” Oluwole said.

He explained that given the current predicament due to the vacuum, it had become difficult to address some critical issues in the health sector.
Oluwole called on the President to move fast in addressing the vacuum created in the running of the government.
“We want the President to expedite action, because it becomes indefensible to our own democracy where it looks like there is vacuum, no movement in that ministry,” he said
Oluwole said somebody who had the basic medical qualification, especially post graduate qualifications should be appointed to head the ministry.
