The Nigeria Medical Association, NMA, in Ogun says the state has the highest number of quacks in the country.

The Chairman of the association in the state, Abayomi Olajide, said this on Tuesday at the group’s Annual General Meeting and Scientific Conference in Abeokuta.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the conference had as theme: “Anti-quackery: A seemingly unending battle.’’

According to him, some members of the association are equally guilty of engaging quacks.

“The war started in Lagos where many facilities were shut down and people started moving toward Ogun State.

“Perhaps, we (Ogun) should be ranked highest nationally as the state that harbours quacks. Maybe, it is because of our proximity to Lagos.

“From what we have seen, there are a lot of them that are thriving within the society,”
