Pioneer Vice Chancellor of the Federal University of Health led against him Sciences, Otukpo, and new President of the Nigerian Medical Association, NMA, , Professor Innocent Ujah, says he has sufficiently demolished the allegations of fraud and sack from work at the Nigerian Institute for Medical Research, Lagos,lèveled against him by showing proofs that he was not corrupt when he was the director general.

Ujah who stated this during a courtesy call on the governor of Benue state, Samuel Ortom, at the Benue Peoples House today, explained that he had over 90 percent of the votes cast at the recent NMA elections.

Ujah  said the allegations  did not stop him from wining the elections because he demolished the claims and assured that he would use his position to mediate between the doctors on strike and the government.

He said the doctors needed to be motivated.in this COVID-19 period and further promised to meet the doctors and the government at their points if disagreement

He said his track records made him to win the election and emphasized that some of tte doctors that contested with him did not get votes from their states and zones.

Ujah said he would use his position as NMA President to ensure that Benue has consultants not only in the Northwest Senatorial District, but also in the other Senatorial   zones  so that medical attention would be given to the people at the grassroots.

According to him, some people said he was not going to have the position of NMA president because he was already the vice chancellor of the Federal University of Health Sciences, Otukpo not knowing that performance does not depend on the size of the individual concerned..

He said the governor of Benue state, Samuel Ortom, was instrumental to his success during NMA elections because he gave him moral support and commended Plateau and Benue medical associations for standing behind him.

Responding, Governor  Samuel Ortom represented by his deputy, Engr Benson. Abounu, expressed confidence in Professor Ujah’s capacity in handling the two positions of vice chancellor and president of NMA.

Ortom appealed to Ujah to intervene in the strike by resident doctors stressing that such strikes were becoming too many
