Dr Olubunmi Omojowolo’s led faction of the Lagos Nigerian Medical Association has been suspended indefinitely by the national body of the association.
The decision was made known in a communique issued at the end of the National Executive Council Meeting of the association held in Lokoja, Kogi State on the 9th and 10th of December, 2016.
“In accordance with its Constitutional provisions, NEC resolved to indefinitely suspend forthwith the following members of the association namely:
. Dr Olubunmi Omojowolo,
. Dr Alabi Babatunde Musbau ,
. Dr Sekumade Adebayo,
. Dr Onasanya Olade Abeni,
. Dr Uwajeh Kenneth,
. Dr Abiloye Kemi,
. Dr Ayodeji Olaniyi and
. Dr Balogun Babatunde,”
the communique read in part.
The National Executive Council also resolved that Dr Tope Ojo (Immediate past chairman of Lagos state/zone of NMA), should be sent to the NMA National Disciplinary Committee.
The communique was signed by the President of the association, Dr Mike Ogirima and the Secretary General, Dr Yusuf Sununu.
Recall that in July 2016, the Lagos chapter of the NMA held its election, which produced two different executives, with each faction claiming the leadership of the body.
The two elections, which held separately at the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research (NIMR), and the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), produced Dr. Olubunmi Omojowolo and Dr Odusote Olumuyiwa as chairman respectively.
