UK Bans Nigerian Doctor Pestering His Patients With Love Advances!

According to dailymail.co.uk, a family doctor who tried to woo a patient with flowers and cheesy chat-up lines after bragging about being a 'good-looking guy' has been banned from practicing in the UK for one year.
Dr Chris Uzoh, 40, spent six weeks pestering the woman to try and get a date and told her that he had 'huge earning potential'. He also claimed to be 'the best in his medical school' as well as having written 'several well cited scientific publications'.
Dr Uzoh, who is a GP from Great Sankey, near Warrington, Cheshire, also sent her 20 text messages after getting her address and phone number from medical records.
Within 30 minutes of the appointment finishing, he texted her saying: 'Sorry for this text message but I saw you and liked you and thought we could go on a date on the future.
'I am single and looking for a serious relationship and not intending to mess about.' He also left the patient a voice mail saying he wanted to 'hear her voice before he went to work'.
Dr Uzoh later sent her another text saying: 'I've been feeling like a schoolboy meeting a girl he fancied for the first time. I haven't felt this way in a while.'
Later the woman received a card and flowers at her home along with a further message from Uzoh adding: 'I wonder how else I would have met you if not this way.
'My heart is pure, I care, I hope it would be possible to make you mine someday.'
The unnamed patient, who lived alone urged, Uzoh to stop pestering her but he pressed on with his chat-up lines saying: 'I was trying to be romantic - I did not mean to be creepy. I was excited about you.'
Another text said: 'How is it possible that a good looking guy who is a doctor, who has a job with huge earning potential, who was the best graduating doctor in his medical school, who started out as a urological surgeon with several well-cited scientific publications, who thinks you beautiful and special, who wants you - and you wouldn't give him a chance? I've been in a Toronto and I couldn't stop thinking about you.'
The patient eventually complained to Uzoh's colleagues at the Murdishaw Health Centre in Runcorn and he was reported to the General Medical Council. The father of two has since quit the UK and is now working in Toronto, Canada.
At the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service in Manchester, Uzoh was suspended from practise in Britain for 12 months after he was found guilty of misconduct.
The incidents began between March and May last year when the woman was booked in for an appointment with Uzoh after complaining of abdominal pain.
The woman - known as Patient A - told the hearing: 'I was really shocked to get that initial message from him because I trusted him as a doctor.
'If I got that message now there is no way I would respond. I was in a difficult position particularly at that point so seeing him taking an interest was a nice thing. 'The next morning I woke up and there was a further text message and voicemail message.
'I remember I was doing my make up and getting ready for work and I saw that he was calling but I didn't want to pick up. He left a message saying: 'Hi, I just wanted to hear your voice before I start my day'.
'Everyday I looked at my phone there was something from him whether it be a text message, missed call or a voicemail message.
'As soon as I knew the flowers had been sent I knew that they would be from Dr Uzoh - there weren't many people who knew my address at the time.
'I felt sick because I live on my own and nobody knew my address apart from my family and I was scared because he had got my records so what was to say he wouldn't turn up at my door.
'That feeling lasted several months. It wasn't long after that I text him to tell him not to contact me but then five months later he contacted me again.
Christopher Hamlet, the lawyer for the GMC, said: 'She had not given him her number or any indication that she wished to be contacted by him.
'He obtained her number by looking at her medical records and sent a series of text messages, some consecutive in number and all sent in pursuit of a personal relationship which was sexually motivated.
'Patient A was at the time vulnerable. She claims at first she was flattered by these messages, however, in due course he went on to bombard her with messages, voicemails and even sent flowers to her home address.
'She said she felt sick about what happened and was concerned and scared that he had accessed her records and sent flowers to her home.'
One message sent by Patient A to Uzoh said: 'As flattered as I was at the time it all got too much too quickly.
'I feel you went too far with getting my address without my permission and it scared me a little and the thought of someone getting it so easily when I have put my trust in doctors is unnerving.
'Thank you for the flowers but I would appreciate it if you didn't do that again.'
Another to him said: 'You're being too full on - I've only met you once and I was your patient!'
Uzoh was not at the tribunal but he filed a written submission claiming his intentions towards the woman were 'noble.'
He added: 'My intention was not to prey on the patient or the patient's vulnerability. I have always been professional toward my patients and never had any issues with NHS England or the GMC.
'I regret my actions and I apologize for all the stress this may have caused the patient.'
Panel chairman Mrs Jayne Wheat said: 'It is important that patients have trust in their doctors and in the confidential nature of their medical records, and it is seriously improper for a doctor to seek to pursue a relationship of this kind with a patient, the more so when he persists in it beyond the point when the patient has made clear that his approaches are unwelcome.
'While the tribunal has found that Dr. Uzoh's behaviour was sexually motivated, there was no evidence that his intentions were obscene or unlawful. Read more here

Virgin Atlantic Airways Exits Nigerian Market, Sacks All Nigerian Cabin Crew, Close Down Call Centre

According to news reports, Virgin Atlantic Airways has laid off all their Nigerian cabin crew. They were only given three weeks notice and no severance package regardless of length of service will be paid. The air-hostesses they sacked were about 20 in number. The company closed down their Nigerian call centre last year and let go of all the Nigerian staffers. The Owner, you would recall had said sometime in 2012, he was weary of doing business in Nigeria. Here is an extract from a statement Richard Branson issued in 2012 after the ill-fated footsteps he took by setting up a new airline in conjunction with the Nigerian government; “We fought daily battle against government agents who wanted to daily make fortune from us, politicians who saw the government 49% as a meal to seek for all kinds of favour…watchdogs (regulatory body) that didn’t know what to do and persistently asking for bribes at any point…Nigeria people are generally nice but the politicians are very insane…that may …

The Semen-Drinking Sambian Tribe Of Papua New Guinea!

To become a man in this primitive Sambian tribe in Papua New Guinea, boys are removed from the presence of all females at the age of seven, living with other males for ten years. The idea here is to convince everyone in the village that he can live without women.The isolation they encounter not only prevent the boys from having any sexual activities with women, but also from seducing, or being seduced by married women. During the ten years, the skin is pierced to remove any contamination brought upon by women. For the same reason, a sharp stick is inserted into the child’s nostrils until he bleeds profusely. They also regularly incur vomiting caused by consuming large amounts of sugarcane.
Older men now tell the boys that the bachelors (warriors) are going to copulate with them orally in order to make them grow. Throughout the six stages of the tribe’s rite of passage, the boy will perform fellatio (blowjob) to these warriors to, ironically, prove he is a real man. Because shoving manh…

Donald Trump Blasts President Buhari, Says His Priority Is The Full Introduction Of Islam, The Annihilation Of His Political Opponents And Absolute Extermination Of The People Of The Old Eastern Nigeria.

I Trust the US Republican presidential hopeful for being blunt! He said; ''no sensible president continuously travels round the globe while his country is in terrible hardship and economic mess.''
He continued; ''It can only happen in Nigeria where all that matters to the President is the full introduction of Islam, annihilation of his political opponents and absolute extermination of the people of the old Eastern Nigeria
Buhari, prior to his questionable victory at the polls as the President of Nigeria made lots of promises which he has obviously failed to keep and in most cases denied.
As a matter of fact, change could either be ‘positive’ OR ‘negative. To the earlier misconception of Nigerians and current state of the economy as a result of initiation of impracticable economic policies, it wouldn’t be wrong to assert that what president Muhammadu Buhari and his All Progressives Congress promised Nigerians was a NEGATIVE CHANGE.
