Indications emerged yesterday, that the Federal Medical Centre, Owerri may call off its strike this week. Unconfirmed reports have it that the Federal Ministry intervened and have made the The Medical Director go on a 1 year protracted leave.

However, the Medical Director of the FMC Owerri, Mrs Angela Uwakwem, was spotted at a conference organised by The West Africa College of Physicians, in Owerri yesterday. She was among the special guest invited to the Annual General Scientific Meeting of the College. Remember that Dr Angela Uwakwem is not a member or Fellow of the Physicians’ College. She is however a fellow of the West Africa College of Surgeons, a sister body.

We expect an official statement from the management of the Federal Medical Centre, Owerri… soon!!!

More details later…
