6.1 NMA building we are now at the stage of ceiling, piping,

11.0 COURTESY CALL on Commissioner for Health done on radio and tv
13.0 FALL-OUT OF ADM report as read by Assistant Secretary, Dr
The annual general/delegate meeting of the Nigerian Medical
Association was held at the Valley View Conference Center, Government
House, Abeokuta, Ogun State. It held from the 22nd May 25th May
2009. All the states of the federation and the federal capital
territory Abuja were represented. Cross River State was represented by
its Officials, ARD and MDCAN members.
2 NEC meetings, one Plenary Session and an annual delegated meeting
were held where issues relating to the association and specifically
the welfare of its Members were adequately addressed.
Highlights from the meetings include:
1) Doctor's Diary- NEC noticed irregularity in it financial dealings
with the diary publishers (health living products) and decided to
suspend further dealing with them. It was also decided to suspend
publication for one year and during this interim period set up a
committee to probe its dealing with the publisher and also to get a
2) NMA HOUSE The present secretariat at Abuja (a double duplex) is a
rented property and the landlord wants to sell. NMA was given 1st
priority to buy and was offered at N 140 million in 2 instalments. NEC
agreed to buy the building but the modalities of raising funds to be
worked out by NOC but not through levy.
3) MDCN REMITTANCE it was observed that remittance of annual
practising fees to NMA which is a main source of revenue was not
backed by proper documentation.
Representation of MDCN who was present promised proper documentation
within a month as they were re-organising. It was also agreed that the
states would get their own fair share of remittance; also the earlier
resolve to cancel the MDCN levy was revisited and upheld. The
president who is now on the council of MDCN promised to follow up the
matter and if possible repay those who already paid or convert the
levy to a year's practising licence fee.
The issue of various NMA lands- Lekki Lagos (2) one in Victoria
Island were looked into and the president was mandated to form
committees to look into them.
And audit report Nov. 08 April was read, deliberated upon and
Secretariat report- there was a report from the secretariat,
highlighting it's activities for the 6 months under review. Also
reports from the states including Cross River State was received.
NARD RECONCILIATON this was a thorny issue as most branches
including Cross-River has written NOC criticising NEC decision at
Gombe to recognise one of the NARD factions contrary to an earlier AGM
decision. The secretariat claimed not to have minutes of the AGM
decision. So a state by state vote was carried out in all attempts to
ratify the GOMBE decision. The decision was ratified and as there was
so much disaffection with this the NMA president promised to set up a
committee to harmonise the 2 factions as both were important and could
not be discarded. This was agreed to.
REMUNERATIONS the committee on doctor's remunerations read its
report covering the period Nov. 08 to Feb. 09. It noted its various
meetings including that with inter-ministerial/ inter-agency
committee, FMOH, senate and House of Representatives Committees on
health, MSIWC and NOC. It reported that a draft template for
consolidated medical salary structure (CONMESS) had been accepted by
the technical committee.
It noted that disagreements on some gray areas like call duty,
allowance, clinical duty allow, hazard and also presentation of
different submissions by MDCN and NAGMDPN were holding up the
presentation to Fed. Executive council and its eventual approval. NEC
frowned at these excuses and noted that Nigerian Doctors were
impatient at the slow pace being adopted by the federal government in
implementing the MSS. A motion for a 21 day ultimatum starting from
27th April 2009 for government to formally approve and implement the
MSS was unanimously voted for (36 states and FCT) and passed. This was
adjusted the next day following pleas from Representative of the
Minister of Health for more time the adjusted motion reads.
That NEC NMA frowns at the slow pace with which government is
following the approval and implementation of MSS/MSSS despite several
submissions FV IB.
The federal government is hereby given a 28 working day ultimatum
starting from Monday 27th April to approve and implement the MSS,
failure to do this will result in resumption of a postponed indefinite
withdrawal of services nationwide by Doctors. He noted that 28 working
days was enough time for a Government that had the interest of Doctors
It was also agreed that
1. A communiquι to this effect be sent immediately to government
2. Press release be published in national dailies.
3. In the event of government not obliging, NEC would set up a
committee to monitor and manage the strike action unlike the previous
episode of 2007 where the President unilaterally called off a strike.
4. The proposal for a N 10,000 levy per Doctor to prosecute the strike
was modified to read; N 5,000 if the strike starts and N 5,000 if the
Other AOB`s like NHIS, affiliates working in isolation, Doctors
promoting the interest of other doctors, Next AGM at Abuja were also
Following discussions on the floor of the house by Dr Ago B.(ARD UCTH
VP), Dr Osakwe Onyebuchi, Dr Ekpor Abit, Dr Abang Innocent, Dr
Etukidem it was agreed that the NARD faction the ARD of UCTH belong
to should continue on their legitimate deliberations/ activities, not
to join the other factions because it will be humiliating but they
should work with the reconciliation committee to arrive at a truce.
NARD is very important to NMA fight.
On MSS, NMA believe it should still be called MSS and not CONMESS
because consolidation appears a misnomer. A template has been given
and ultimatum given and we believe that the government will act to
prevent the action also passed that all effort should be made to
mobilize its members and sensitize the public so that impact will be
felt. Also strikes levy is important to execute the strike, so that
NOC will not be strangled of funds
14.0 FREE MEDICAL SERVICES PROJECT OF NMA
The Executive council did proposal to her Excellency of the
willingness of NMA CRS to partner with the state government in health
care delivery to its citizens across the 18 LGA of the state.
Pointing out the fact that the citizens of Cross river state, the
Government and NMA will benefit from the project. The chairman also
informed the house that we are aware that the proposal is being
considered by her Excellency as part of her project to reach out to
the less privilege in the state.
15.0 NMA LAND; The house was also informed of another parcel of land
in located near our permanent secretariat given to NMA by state

a mandate to work towards the end of June 2009 as target date.
17.0 ILLEGAL PRACTICES IN THE STATE;
NMA CRS have written to MDCN monitoring committee in Cross River State
and commissioner for health on this incident and with documented
evidence of patients whom have lost their sight to the activities of
these quarks provided by our members and till date no action has been
taken by the authorities, hence the exco feels we should go on air and
warn the public of such menace and save the public from loss of funds
and the dangers to their health.
The house passed that NMA should write a reminder to the authorities
and that government should go further to arrest and prosecute them.
