NMA Executive Rejects President's Resignation

The crisis rocking the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), yesterday took a bad turn as its members Friday, rejected the resignation of its President, Dr Lawrence Obembe.
The crisis emanated from the National Executive Council ( NEC ) meeting of the NMA, where Obembe was said to be in full support for the suspension of the one month strike.
The crisis came despite public plea to members of NMA to call off their one month strike and intervene in assisting with the provision of care to Ebola infected patients and prevent further spread of the infectious disease,  the association insisted to continue with the strike.
Contrary to earlier speculations Wednesday night that the strike had been called off in the interest of the nation, it was learnt that the argument for the suspension of the industrial action could not sail through.
A source had earlier said that the "strike has been suspended though under controversial circumstances. Work is expected to resume at once."
This was not to be as the deal broke down owing to the bickering and acrimony emanating from the NMA meeting.  It was gathered that in the early hours of Thursday there was pandemonium at the venue of the NMA meeting.
The meeting which took place at Vines Hotel, Durumi area of Abuja became rowdy as those in support of calling off the strike tried to push their position through.
A source who attended the meeting said that the NMA president, Obembe was particularly in support of the call off of the strike, while some were opposed to the idea
