The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), FCT branch, has suspended its executives over alleged abuse of office, while a 7-member caretaker committee has been set up to run the affairs of the association in the next few weeks.
Addressing journalists after being sworn-in in Abuja, the chairman of the committee, Chira Obiora, a consultant family physician at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital (UATH), Gwagwalada, said the committee will work within the mandate given to them by the congress, including organising of the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the association slated for June 19 and also conduct elections into the various offices of the association.
He said “today, I have been nominated as the chairman, NMA, FCT following the suspension of the executives based on allegation and also prove of recklessness in managing the affairs of NMA.”
Speaking on what actually happened, he said “the suspended executives had the mandate of screening some members that are about to go into an election of NMA 2018, they introduced all sorts of kangaroos activities; corruption, financial misappropriation, issuing of receipts, even hidden of attendance register, favouritism and lots more.
“We noticed that, the congress demanded for a fair activity from them but they refused to heed the calling and the advices of the congress including the elders. The elder’s forum actually intervened in this process and they were a kind of stubborn and that led to the collection of signatories. The decision taken here is that the current executives were suspended and that is what stands today.”
Obiora used the medium to advice any member that is doing business with the suspended executives that they are doing that at their own risk.
“I also want to send this signals to the banks, our financial institutions that no money should leave the association accounts. The accounts stands frozen from today until stated otherwise by this caretaker committee.
“As the congress has directed us, what we are to do today is that all the aspirants that were disqualified based on the financial charges were all screened and are all qualified. The only people that may not meet the criteria are those that failed based on attendance. So as it is today, we are abiding by the decision of the congress that says the people that were screened out based on financial dealings should be nullified and qualified.
“At the end of our AGM which will be coming up in two weeks, new executives would have emerged. By tomorrow, we will publish the list of those that are contesting so they can start campaigning immediately,” he explained.
