The attention of the National Officers Committee (NOC) of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has been drawn to the circular with Ref. No HCSF/CSO/HRM/1274/T3 dated 11th September 2020 issued by Office of the Head of Service of the Federation.
The NOC has studied the content of the circular and rejects it in its entirety.
Furthermore, as a responsible leadership, the President of NMA,Prof (Dr) Innocent AO Ujah FNMA mni, has commenced wide consultations with relevant stakeholders on the issues at stake.
In addition, there will be an emergency NOC meeting on Thursday,17th September 2020 to deliberate on the situation after which an appropriate response will be issued to the relevant authorities by the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA).
The President of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), therefore calls on all our members to remain calm as the NOC is working towards finding a permanent solution to this unwarranted assault on the integrity of our noble profession.
Thank you .
