I didn’t need WAEC result for admission into US varsity —Adeleke

The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke , has said he gained admission into the university he attended in the United States without presenting his West African School Certificate Examination result.

Adeleke said this in Ede on Thursday while reacting to the dismissal of the suit filed against his eligibility before Justice David Oladimeji of the Osun State High Court .

Adeleke , who was flanked by some of his mates at the Ede Muslim Grammar School , Ede said he was well known during his school days because he loved his schoolmates and loved sports .

The PDP candidate said he sat for a qualifying examination before he was given admission to the university .
He said, “ We all went to school and we know that some results would not be released .

But they may release the remaining results tomorrow . Who knows? After I sat for the exams , my mind was in the US . The university I attended did not need our qualification from here . I say for their qualifying exam .”

He said he had been calling aspirants that contested with him for the PDP’ s sole ticket and that he had held a meeting with Dr Akin Ogunbiyi in the presence of the National Chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus, and the national organising secretary of the party.

Adeleke said, “ I chose to remain quiet since the conclusion of the governorship primary for two reasons ; first it is my unchanged belief in party supremacy and utmost respect for the leadership of our great party.

“ The second reason is because the issue of my qualification and eligibility as a governorship candidate has been a subject of litigation until yesterday .

Now that a judicial pronouncement confirming my qualification and eligibility to contest has been made , the time is now right to speak on the matter.

“ For the records , let me reiterate the obvious and easily verifiable fact that I attended the Ede Muslim Grammar School between 1979 and 1981 , my schoolmates are everywhere , and some are even here with me . While in school , I was a lover of football, so I was very popular. I was elected the president of the alumni association of this same school until recently . ”

He described those questioning his attendance at the school as “ clearly being mischievous and deceptive . ”
Adeleke added, “ I also must express my gratitude to the judiciary for upholding the truth despite the pressure.

It is now clear and proven that I did not forge any certificate or testimonial . In any case, how can I forge a testimonial that simply attests to the fact of my attendance at the school ?”

Adeleke assured the people of the state of his determination to provide quality leadership and to rescue them from the ‘mess ’ created by the present administration in the state .

Nigerian doctors task governors on health insurance scheme 

The National President of the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), Dr. Francis Faduyile has called on state governments to commence the implementation of the primary healthcare insurance scheme in order to make healthcare delivery available to all Nigerians.

The National President made the call in his welcome address at the 2018 National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the association held in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

He said that the implementation of the health insurance scheme was one of the two critical elements needed to achieve an effective and efficient primary health care delivery in the country.

Faduyile however commended a few states in the country that have signed into law the health insurance bills and appealed to those states that were yet to sign the bill into law not to delay any further.

“A few states in Nigeria have signed into law health insurance bills; there is still much room for improvement. We thank you Mr. Governor for signing primary healthcare management agency bill and as well as state health insurance bill into law.

“However, we call for the speedy implementation so that the good people of Akwa Ibom can enjoy and continue to enjoy the benefits you are showering on them in your administration as the governor of the state,” he said

The National President disclosed that the association was in talks with sister associations in the healthcare sector to stem the frequent disharmony in the sector.

His words, “We are currently engaging with our friends in the health team particularly the nurses and pharmacists and hopefully we know that this approach will reduce the disharmony that has characterised the health sector in recent time.”

Responding, the state governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel stated that apart from signing the health insurance bill into law, his administration had also gone a step further to improve health care delivery in the state by setting up the primary healthcare development agency. The governor added that he has released take-off grant to ensure the implementation of the health care insurance scheme in the state.

He tasked medical doctors in the country to venture into medical manufacturing by partnering with businessmen in that direction, which he reasoned would bridge the gap in medical equipment production and also reduce the huge foreign exchange spent on the importation of medical equipment.

NAIJARAY reports that the 2018 National Executive Council meeting of the NMA had as its theme: “Strengthening healthcare delivery in Nigeria: Addressing legal and ethical issues in health care management”. The event witnessed the investiture of Governor Udom Emmanuel as the NMA Ambassador, and the offering of over 3,000 medical consultations, 144 free medium and minor surgeries as stated by the national president of the association.
