Boko Haram: Doctors beg Buhari to secure Abuja ahead of NMA conference

“Lately, there had been bold incursions into the FCT, and this would negatively impact on the socio-economic indices of the FCT.”

• August 1, 2022

The Nigerian Medical Association (FCT chapter) has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime to beef up security in the FCT following recent threats of Boko Haram attack.

The chairman of NMA FCT chapter, Enema Amodu, made the appeal on Sunday at a news conference to unveil programmes lined up for the 2022 Scientific Conference/Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the association.

“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,” said Mr Amodu.

He called on Mr Buhari’s regime to take definite measures to curb the evolving menace within FCT and its environs.

The NMA chairman also said the programmes lined up for the 2022 week-long programme would focus on health insurance, with its theme exploring the National Health Insurance Authority Act, a bill he said was before the National Assembly, sponsored by a senator, Ibrahim Oloriegbe.

According to Mr Amodu, 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 the election of new officers to take over the mantle of leadership,” he explained. “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.”
