The 7th Annual National Scientific Conference/ Workshop of the Emergency Nurses Association of Nigeria (ENAN) has been concluded.

The weeklong event, which encapsulated the association’s annual general meeting, climaxed yesterday.

Delivering the welcome address, the Chairman ENAN, Nurse Abdullahi D. Yahaya, said the conference was thoughtfully chosen to bring to focus the very important tool missing in Nigeria’s national healthcare policy structure.

According to him, the absence of the tool has been affecting collective efforts at providing emergent, immediate and prompt healthcare services to those in critical need. 

Also speaking, Mrs. Margret O. Oseni, opined that the effectiveness of the emergency medical service system (EMSS), has been hampered by various challenges, ranging from funding to inadequate infrastructure among others, adding that for the EMSS to work effectively, it will need various stakeholders to work together in areas of government funding, infrastructures, modern equipment and favourable policies.

While reading her keynote address, Mrs. Oseni added that an enabling environment, safe working conditions, staff training and motivation among hospital management would also help ensure the effectiveness of EMSS.

According to her, team spirit, competencies through constant development and practise, research, right attitude, scientific approach in client management, proper communication and documentation will also ensure an effective and efficient EMSS.

Present at the conference were top dignitaries including Dr. Jide Idris, Hon. Commissioner for Health, Lagos State; Mrs. Kemi Ogunyemi, Commissioner IV; Prof. Adewale Oke, Chief Medical Director LASUTH; Dr. Mustapha Ibrahim, Director Clinical Service and Training (DCST LASUTH), among others.

Akpabio got N300m fence construction contract from NDDC - Senator Peter Nwaoboshi


Speaking to newsmen on Wednesday, June 3, Senator Nwaoboshi said the contracts were fully paid for but there was nothing to show for it.


He said:


“Findings show that while there was no physical evidence of implementation of these projects, checks show contracts were awarded and fully paid for.

“Such practices have turned the region to sites of abandoned projects.”


This is coming after Akpabio said he would not allow the NDDC to be raped under his watch. A few days ago, the former Governor of Akwa Ibom state raised an alarm about NDDC abandoned projects and the agency being “turned to an ATM” by politicians.

Akpabio said;


“We have also had a lot of political interference, people have not allowed NDDC to work as it ought to, people coming with ideas not to move the region forward but to move their pockets forward. It has always been so… I think people were treating the place as an ATM, where you just walk in there to go and pluck money and go away, I don’t think they were looking at it as an interventionist agency.”
