Panic grips LUTH

 

 

Anxiety has gripped the management of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, LUTH, Idi Arabs, following the decision by the Presidency to probe the emergence of Prof Wasiu Lanre Adeyemo as the Chief Medical Director of the hospital.

 

The decision followed a rash of protests and petitions against the appointment, which was allegedly done without proper authorization.

 

Panic grips LUTH

 

Recall that the selection process of who to succeed erstwhile LUTH CMD, Prof Chris Bode, whose tenure ended on March 24, 2023, remained inconclusive till the exit of former President Muhammadu Buhari on May 29, of this year.

 

 

 

 

Curiously however, some highly connected officials of the Federal Ministry of Health were alleged to have hurriedly despatched a letter appointing Prof Adeyemo as substantive CMD, acting on a purported Presidential approval signed on Sunday, May 28, 2023, at a time Buhari had already performed official hand over to President Bola Tinubu two days earlier on Friday 26th May.

 

 

 

 

 

What remained more baffling to The Presidency was that out of the six Federal Teaching Hospitals in Nigeria which had interview processes for CMDs conducted same day and remained inconclusive, only LUTH was hurriedly finalized by the concerned top echelon of the Health Ministry, taking advantage of the transition of government.

 

 

 

 

 

Miffed by the development, President Tinubu through his Chief of Staff, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila directed a full probe to establish the culpability of officials of the Federal Ministry of Health and former key Presidency top shots connected with the development.

 

 

 

 

 

A memo dated 17th October, 2023 referenced: 58787/S.1/C.1/300, which emanated from the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume, demanded a written report from the Coordinating Minister of Health, Prof Ali Pate, on what transpired throughout the interview selection process.

 

 

 

 

In the said letter signed on the SGF’s behalf by the Permanent Secretary, Dr Nnamdi Maurice Mbieri, the SGF directed that the Health Minister should be prompt in his response to “enable government take further necessary action on the matter”.

 

 

 

 

Upon receipt of the memo, the Health Minister directed the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Dr Daju Kachollom to explain why the Ministry hurriedly issued a letter of appointment to the LUTH CMD in a substantive capacity when the relevant due-diligence agencies of government especially the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) had not yet given final clearance on the process.

 

 

 

It was gathered that the PS, Dr Kachollom said that none of the present actors in the Ministry was in office when the alleged infractions leading to the LUTH leadership tussle took place.

 

 

A source in the Health Ministry promised that justice would be done and that laid down administrative procedures would be followed.

With the development, a news selection process could be in the offing with Adeyemo and Prof. Femi Fasanmade, a former Chairman of, the Medical Advisory Committee (CMAC), slugging it out.

Through various petitions addressed to The Presidency and the Health Ministry, Prof Fasanmade had stridently challenged the emergence of Prof Adeyemo, first as the Ag. CMD since he, Fasanmade, was the most senior at CMAC, while Adeyemo also served as his Deputy.

The main plank of his argument is that the foundational error committed by the now dissolved Governing Board of LUTH, led by Alhaji Sali Bello, whose four-year tenure already expired more than six months ago when it still went ahead to appoint Prof Adeyemo as Ag. CMD and even though he was not the most Senior Consultant in LUTH.

Aviation Minister Explores Partnerships at Future Aviation Forum in Riyadh

 

 

The Honourable Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo SAN CON FCIarb (UK), is actively engaging with Middle East aviation leaders at the ongoing Future Aviation Forum in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Hosted at the prestigious King Abdulaziz International Conference Center (KAICC), the forum marks a pivotal moment for global aviation collaboration.

At the behest of His Excellency Jassim Saif Ahmed Al-Sulaiti, Minister of Transport of the State of Qatar, and His Excellency Saleh Al-Jasser, Minister of Transport and Logistics of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Aviation Minister convened on the sidelines to deepen ties between Nigeria and the Middle East in the realm of air transportation and logistics.

The third edition of the Future Aviation Forum, themed “Elevating Global Connectivity,” underscores the importance of fostering innovation, sustainable air travel, and cultural exchange. By bringing together leaders from the aviation sector and adjacent industries, the forum serves as a catalyst for knowledge exchange and business opportunities in a dynamic economic sector.

Keyamo expressed gratitude to Minister Al-Sulaiti for his keen interest in Nigeria, affirming Nigeria’s openness to investment in civil aviation and other sectors of the economy. Emphasizing the importance of learning from Qatar’s success in airline operations, particularly exemplified by the global acclaim of Qatar Airways, the Minister sought collaboration to enhance Nigeria’s aviation sector.

A key proposal made by the Nigeria Aviation Minister involves encouraging Qatar Airways to patronize local catering services on its return trips to Doha from Nigeria. This initiative aligns with the principles of reciprocity outlined in the Bilateral Air Services Agreement (BASA) and aims to stimulate Nigeria’s local economy.

As the Future Aviation Forum continues until May 22, 2024, the Minister remains committed to forging strategic partnerships that will elevate Nigeria’s aviation industry on the global stage.

Primate Ayodele’s Prophecy On Chad Presidential Election Comes To Pass

 

 

The Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has yet again been celebrated for the fulfillment of his prophecy on the just concluded Chad presidential election.

The election saw the incumbent head of state, Idriss Deby becoming victorious.

Chad’s state election body said interim President Mahamat Idriss Deby won the 6 May presidential election outright with over 61 per cent of the vote, citing provisional results, even as his main challenger declared himself the winner.

This is in fulfillment of Primate Ayodele’s prophecy which he repeatedly shared about the outcome of the presidential election. Several prophecies of Primate Ayodele about Chad have come to pass already and the victory of Idriss Deby is just an addition to them.

Most recent of his prophecy regarding the election was the one he shared earlier this month, a few days about the election making it known that the interim leader would win the election but there will be more issues to contend with in his administration.

Just like in his previous prophecies, Primate Ayodele assured Deby of victory in the election but warned him to be careful of attacks and attempt to truncate his government.

These were his words

‘’In Chad, Idriss will win the election but there will be a gang up against him. There will be attempts to truncate his government, despite the fact that his government will have international backings. He has good intentions but there will be complications politically.’’

In earlier prophecies, Primate Ayodele revealed that the election would favor the interim leader and that some opposition leaders would be disqualified from participating in the election. The prophet’s prophecy came through with the barring of some candidates.

‘’Chad: there will be political rowdiness, they will want to disqualify some candidates and there will be electoral violation. Mahamat Idriss Deby Itno will still have an edge except there’s a coalition. He will have an edge over other candidates. They should pray against the crisis during and after the election. New terrorist will come up in Chad, they will face a bigger security challenges.’’

Also, in a video interview, the prophet advised an opposition candidate, Succes Masra not to waste his money because the ruling party will win.

‘’Idriss will win, I am seeing Masra Succes wasting his money and energy, the ruling party will win’’
