A’Ibom: NMA Impeaches Chairman, Vice Over Misconduct


From Our Correspondent

Nigerian Medical Association, NMA, Akwa Ibom State chapter, has impeached its Chairman, Dr Emem Abraham and the Vice, Dr Aniekan Utuk, over alleged “gross misconduct.”

The association’s Secretary, Dr Usenobong Akpan was appointed Acting Chairman until the tenure of the present administration ends on July 16.

Addressing journalists at a press conference in Uyo, the acting chairman said the impeachment followed a motion moved during the association’s Ordinary General Meeting.

Giving a breakdown of the alleged gross misconduct which led to the impeachment of the duo, Akpan listed abnormalities in the presentation of financial reports, suppression of views during congresses, inconsistency in financial figures and lack of proper accountability among others as the grounds that occasioned the development.

Akpan argued that his appointment was in accordance with the association’s constitution, given that until his elevation, he was the highest office holder and most qualified to run the affairs of NMA.

He said the press conference was to notify the public of the new administration of NMA in Akwa Ibom State.

“We are here to notify the public of the change in leadership. Our request is that, following the resolutions by Congress, everyone should cease to recognise the chairman and vice, and all the privileges accorded them are hereby withdrawn.”

On whether he would contest the forthcoming election, Akpan declared that he is not interested and would not vie for any position.

Efforts to speak with the impeached chairman were not successful as her lines were unreachable.
