The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) on Thursday issued a September 30 deadline for the Federal Government to reconstitute the board of the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN).
The President of the NMA, Dr Francis Faduyile, gave the deadline at a news conference in Abuja.
Faduyile said that the association’s call for reconstitution of the board was part of the resolutions reached at the just-concluded National Executive Council (NEC)’s meeting of the body at Osogbo in Osun.
He said the NEC had expressed its displeasure over the Federal Government’s inability to reconstitute MDCN, in spite of repeated appeals by the NMA.
“We call on the Federal Government to immediately reconstitute the council to ensure smooth operation of medical practice in Nigeria,” he said.
