"We need a practice that is structured. People have argued that we want to control practitioners and I say no, we need to control the practice."

"That’s what MOPICON can do for us at this time. We need to protect the practice, to define the code of ethics and the terms with which people practice and to improve generally the working conditions of practice in Nigeria.”
