Nigerian Eye Doctor Charged In JA!!!!

What do you mean by ‘working without authorisation’?   Is it that the Nigerian optometrist is an ‘illegal’ on the Island or he is not a certified optometrist?   I am not of the legal mind and so are many of our readers, so simplicity and clarity are sought.  I will proffer regardless.

I have already told you that ‘wen u bemoan di migration move of our supposedly brightest, understand sey migration a gwaan from ‘Whappy kill Phillup’, an it nah stap’.  Lee Chin, Billionaire on Jamaica’s soil wrote a few days ago that whilst we complain and do nothing for ourselves, others will come to this Island and reap.  My sentiments exactly.

We are told by Economists that  despite the country’s  ills,  Nigeria is ‘where its act’ as it relates to ‘boom’ in the economy.  It sports Oil, and when you have that commodity your country is considered rich.  Despite the terrorists group Boko Haram, with a population exceeding 150 million Nigeria is still profiled as the Country where entrepreneurs can prosper and the rich become richer.

Not so long ago the media reported on a foreign Dentist who was practicing without a license on the Roc. In fact his license was suspended from a State in the good ole USA, yet he found refuge here. No follow up has been reported on that case. So why come to Jamaica I ask?  In comparison to Nigeria, the USA and what many on the Roc want to espouse, ‘wi nuh mash up?’
