In a bold step of faith and as a show of utter disapproval to the leadership of Federal Teaching Hospital, Ido-Ekiti (FETHI), all registered associations and unions of the federal institution held a joint meeting today, May 3rd, 2016.
This is probably the first time in the recent history of the health profession that all pressure groups decided to put aside their differences and fight for a common cause.
The man on the hot seat is no other person than the Chief Medical Director (CMD) of FETHI, Dr. L. M. Ayodele. Members of Staff of the hospital have registered their gross displeasure over the way and manner in which the hospital has been run over the years.
The height of it all was the show of utter disregard for the lives of seven Ekiti citizens who were sadly lost in a ghastly motor accident as reported by Footprints last week. See SIX MEDICAL DOCTORS DIE IN FATAL AUTO CRASH. Three of the seven fallen heroes were staff of FETHI.
Find below the complete communique released at the end of the joint meeting.
The Association of Resident Doctors had on Tuesday, April 26th, 2016 passed a vote of no confidence on the leadership of FETHI following the Emergency General Meeting their members had at Alexander Akinyele Doctors’ Lounge. (See RESIDENT DOCTORS PASS VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE ON LEADERSHIP OF FEDERAL TEACHING HOSPITAL, IDO-EKITI.)
Find below the communique released at the end of that meeting.
The situation looks critical indeed. We can only hope for a speedy resolution of the crisis.
