Strike’ll soon be suspended —NMA president, 21 Aug 2014 [cached]
PRESIDENT of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), Dr Kayode Obembe, on Wednesday, hinted that striking doctors in the country may call off their protracted strike any moment from now.
Obembe, who gave the hint after a prolonged meeting with the Senate President, David Mark, which lasted from Tuesday night till the early hours of Wednesday, said the meeting was "useful and successful."
The statement quoted Obembe as saying that he would not give the exact date and time when the strike would be called off, until he reported to his members since, according to him, "the meeting with the Senate President is very useful and successful."
Obembe also clarified that the striking doctors did not abandon the nation in this trying times of major heath challenge, on account of the outbreak of Ebola virus disease, adding that "there was never a time we refused to respond to national emergency, we have been alive to our duties as professionals and to our fatherland."

Regarding this as "laughable and mischievous", the NMA president, Dr. Kayode Obembe also condemned what he called "an open inciting nature and unveiled hatred leveled against the eminently qualified Nigerians whose eligibility to equally aspire to lead the universities, has been proved beyond all reasonable doubt." Giving reasons why medical doctors are suitably qualified, he said that after medical school, doctors get fellowships rather than master's and PhD-all qualifications NMA says outweigh PhDs in content and context. He also pointed to open differences-doctors must meet higher cut-off scores to get university admissions, a longer period of academic study, international common entrance to get into a medical fellowship compared with PhDs, and the six years it takes to complete a fellowship unlike an average three years for a PhD. It also points to Nigerian Universities Commission's recommendation that a fellowship or its equivalent from the National Postgraduate Medical College of Nigeria is a suitable alternative to PhDs in relation to appointment of vice chancellors. Obembe also reiterated that Vice Chancellors with medical background have "demonstrated impeccable and track record efficiency, capability and meritorious achievements in university governance in the country".

President of the association, ..., 22 Aug 2014 [cached]
President of the association, Kayode Obembe, in the statement listed some of their grievances to include improved hazard allowance for medical and health workers, about 10 months unpaid arrears and the appointment of a Surgeon-General of the federation.
President of the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) Kayode Obembe made the call in Abuja at a news conference, urging the government to find a better way of resolving the disagreement between the government and medical doctors.
"Government should show commitment on her part in resolving the current impasse with the Nigeria Medical Association," he added, noting that by all means, any attempt by government to break her (NMA) ranks as an association, will be resisted.
Obembe said government refusal to resolve issues with the association and allowing the strike to extend had affected the health of many Nigerians.
He also advised the government to ensure that all persons under surveillance for Ebola virus infection did not travel outside their places of residence.
