All is not going well with Nigeria Association of Doctors as NMA president resigns!
The President of the Nigerian Medical Association, Dr. Kayode Obembe, has resigned.
Obembe’s resignation followed the controversy over the strike action embarked upon by the union.
Obembe had on Thursday announced the suspension of the strike action embarked upon by the union following the appeal by the government sequel to the outbreak of the Ebola Virus Disease in the country.
However, the Lagos State chapter of the union said the suspension of the strike was not agreed on by the leadership of the NMA at its meeting on Thursday.
Sequel to this, Obembe said he was bowing out.
His full letter, titled: Clarification, reads: “There has been a request for clarification about the two postings from the NMA secretariat on the NMA blog.
“I want to make it categorically cleared that I stand by the very letter of the document that I signed – THAT THE STRIKE WAS SUSPENDED.
“And since upon my INTEGRITY AND HONOUR, I cannot continue to drive the doctrine that “STRIKE CONTINUES”, I hereby tender my letter of resignation as NMA President.
“WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN, I HAVE WRITTEN.”
