    NMA appeals to FG to beef up security in FCT

    The Nigeria Medical Association, FCT Chapter, has appealed to the Federal Government to beef up security in the FCT following recent threats in the environs.

    The Chairman of NMA  FCT Chapter, Dr Enema Amodu, made the appeal on Sunday at a news conference to unveil programmes lined for the 2022 Scientific General Meeting (AGM) of the association.

    He said: “Lately, there had been bold incursions into the FCT, and this would negatively impact on the socio-economic indices of the FCT, and by extension the nation at large.

    ”   He, therefore, called on the Federal Government to take very definite measures to curb the evolving menace within FCT and its environs.  

    The Chairman also said the programmes lined up for the 2022 week-long Scientific would be a unique one where issues on health insurance would be discussed.

    He said the theme for the 2022 Scientific would be mainly on the National Health Insurance Authority Act, a bill he said was before the National Assembly, sponsored by Sen Ibrahim Oloriegbe.

    According to him, the importance of the health insurance act could not be over emphasised if Nigeria must achieve a broader universal health coverage to change the narrative of the health sector.

    He said other issues which continue to stifle the development of the health sector like intra-professional rivalry would also be discussed.

    “This AGM will be an opportunity for us to take stock of the situation, and our activities as doctors and healthcare providers.

    “This AGM will also witness election of new officers to take over the mantle of leadership; as there can only be one person per time, I call on all contestants to play politics devoid of malice and bitterness.

    “NMA belongs to all of us, and at the end of the day, NMA will win,” he stressed.

How can a government just close a hospital?The minister assured that the officials of the FCTA and the Nisa Medical Group will work on the modalities in the future, adding that any agreement that is reached thereafter will be the best for the residents of the territory."It will also be in the best interest of other hospital customers outside of the FCT," he added.He also assured that all medical professionals working or training at the hospital who wished to remain there were free to do so, emphasizing that the FCT Administration had no intention of interrupting activities at the hospital.He commended the NMA for supporting the FCT Administration.Earlier, FCT NMA Chairman Dr. Enema Amodu had expressed concern over FCTA's decision to terminate Garki District Hospital's concession agreement with Nisa Medical Group.It said: “If for other reasons the FCTA deems it appropriate not to renew the grant with NISA Medical Group, the administration should consider physicians and other health care workers currently employed by the hospital with a view to retaining their services and completing their programs. like residence. training and internships.”However, he praised the minister for the achievements in infrastructure development at the FCT and reaffirmed NMA's commitment to partner with the administration.

    Garki Hospital: NMA urges FCTA not to terminate concession agreement

    The FCT Chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has appealed to the authorities of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) not to abruptly terminate the management concession agreement between it and NISA Medical Group.

    NISA manages the General Hospital, Garki, Abuja, on behalf of the FCTA under a 15-year concession agreement.

    NMA FCT President Dr. Enema Amodu made the appeal on Friday at a press conference saying that the one-month termination notice given by the Administration (FCTA) to NISA Medical Group was not fair.

    He said that it had also become necessary to file the planned termination of the contract because some NMA members and other medical staff at the hospital were currently undertaking postgraduate programs at the hospital, in addition to recent medical graduates who were also doing their housework at Hospital. installations.

    “On the abrupt termination of the Public Private Partnership (PPP) agreement between NISA Medical Group and the FCTA at Garki hospital, the NMA FCT totally and completely rejects the position of the FCTA.

    “The FCTA action will end postgraduate medical training for physicians, as well as internship programs for physicians, pharmacists, and nurses currently running their programs at the institution.

    “These programs require a defined period for their proper completion and completion. These accredited programs are overseen by the exalted National College of Postgraduate Physicians of Nigeria and other similar international bodies,” she emphasized.

    Amodu warned that if the FCTA was terminating the concession agreement because NISA Medical Group allegedly owed it NISA Medical Group, both parties should meet to resolve it.

    He called on the FCTA to reconsider its position on terminating the contract.

    According to him, the NMA FCT has noted with dismay the irregular and haphazard spate of posting by internal officials in Nigerian hospital.

    He expressed the association's discontent with the practice, pointing out that the legal period of domestic work for recent medical school graduates was sacrosanct.

    He called for a reorganization of the process for a smooth transition and placement of physicians.

    Amodu claimed that the current situation was unacceptable and fell short of the desired goal, saying that it had created a bigger problem with the core post.

    He recommended that the Federal Ministry of Health should return to the previous state of allowing institutions to hire and pay doctors in order to avoid the unnecessary bottlenecks that are currently being experienced.

    The NMA FCT Chairman also recommended universal applicability of the proposed new hazard allowance for all doctors and healthcare workers, regardless of their job title.

    He said that all health personnel were exposed to the dangers of the profession wherever they practiced and therefore deserved to be paid accordingly.

    He praised the Federal Government for the availability of the COVID-19 vaccine and said that most people have received the booster dose.

    He said there was a need for the government to also pay attention to other infectious diseases such as Lassa fever, cholera and malaria that affect lower class people.

    Amodu also called on the Federal Government and the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to resolve the persistent fuel shortage in the country.

    He said that the situation had severely affected the practice of medicine, as health workers found it difficult to reach their places of work to carry out their duties.

    He also called for frequent and mandatory medical check-ups for health workers to guide against any form of ailment.

    Mr. Moses Ebute (SAN), President of the Nigerian Bar Association, Abuja Branch, who was also at the press conference, condemned the month-long notice given to the NISA medical group.

    He said the legal profession was particularly concerned that the word "abrupt termination" used would show that he had even terminated the contract without giving rise to further discussion.

    According to him, if NISA Medical Group cannot vacate the building within the given month's notice, it should not be vacated as one month's notice is not enough.
