Nigeria In One Minute

UNTH resident doctors apologise, drop petitions against management



In a sudden twist, the Association of Resident Doctors, University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital (ARD, UNTH) has withdrawn petitions it wrote to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) against the Director of Finance, one Mr. Onuchukwu Chukwudi, calling for his sack and investigation.

This was contained in a communique the resident doctors issued at the end of the Supreme Congress of their ordinary general meeting, yesterday, at Ituku/Ozalla, signed by Dr. Akponye Solomon and Dr. Okam Izuchukwu, President and General Secretary, respectively.

The doctors said after a review of their past actions and decisions, with respect to the protest embarked upon last December, against the Chief Medical Director (CMD) and management of UNTH Ituku/Ozalla, they resolved to tender an unreserved apology to the management, staff and board of UNTH for the misguided actions of the congress.
