      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
      Onyebuchi Osakwe

      DRAFT COMMUNIQUE
      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
      new publisher.
      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.

      NMA LANDS
      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
      eventually passed
      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, rent
      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
      at heart.
      It was also agreed that
      1. A communiqué 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
      strike prolongs.
      Other AOB`s like NHIS, affiliates working in isolation, Doctors
      promoting the interest of other doctors, Next AGM at Abuja were also
      discussed.
      In reaction;

      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
      government and the need to secure the land and decide in future what
      to do with it.



      16.0 CME – committee has been set up to organise the NMA CRS CME with
      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.

      18.0 WELFARE ACTIVITIES;

      process the land from Min of Lands CRS which cost the Association the
      sum of N300, 000. The building committee is also working on the
      permanent secretariat project.
      5.0 CME/ AGM/ PHYSICIAN`S WEEK 2009: A quick rundown of the programme
      of event was given as follows; Mon 19th Oct. TV programme with Dr V
      Ansa speaking on "Sudden death". Tuesday 20th Oct. Some selected
      Medical elders in the state will be visited as part of the physician`s
      week. On Wednesday the 21st Oct. 2009 will be CME 9:00am, AGM 2:00pm
      at the conference hall, Permanent site UCTH. Members of the
      association were implored to attend the programmes and on time
      MSS CIRCULAR: The chairman informed the floor that the FGN has kept
      to her promise circularizing the MSS with effective implementation
      date but noted that the state government Doctors were omitted and
      prayed that NMA should fight for their inclusion. Dr`s made
      submissions on the date of implementation, the non inclusion of state
      doctor`s and that NMA should on their knees that it be implemented.
      The floor was also informed of a NEC meeting of NARD at Oshogbo to
      deliberate on the circular.

      The house agreed as follows;
      NMA should draft a letter to the state government and intimate them of
      the MSS circular.
      The state employed doctor`s to take document to their employer with a
      letter for their payment of similar scale.
      NMA will then step in at that stage to support the struggle.
      That all Doctor`s should go back to their duty post and await further
      directives on MSS.
      Dr Ikpeme Ikpeme advised that the exco should arrange an informal
      meeting with the Commissioner for Health and find out from him what he
      thinks will be a challenge to its implementation in the state. We
      should also reach out to the speaker of the state house of assembly,
      deputy governor and governor informally and discuss with them the
      importance of a the package for their doctor`s to enhance their
      performance. These will put us on a good position to come in to the
      issue when eventually the state doctor`s have taken action.
      6.0 AOB: Dr`s Mkpanam EB and Ikpeme I, opined that all effort should
      be made to move into our secretariat on or before 1st Jan 2010.
      Dr Adams Emmanuel posited that NMA should approach the state
      government/min of lands for an expanse of land for residential
      purposes which will subsequently be paid for by interested members via
      installmental payment.
      7.0 ADJOINMENT: Motion for adjoinment was moved by Dr Mkpanam EB and
      seconded by Dr Ikpeme Ikpeme.
      8.0 CLOSING PRAYER: was said by Dr Ekabua John at 4:45pm
