How Ex-Chairman Nigerian Medical Association, Nasarawa Chapter Allegedly Swindled Millions of Naira Belonging To The Association
A member of the Nigerian Medical Association Nasarawa State Chapter John Udoh, has written a petition against Dr. Nayagawa Ayuwaja of Federal Medical Centre, Keffi, to the Nigeria Medical Association for allegedly swindling of money meant for the Association.
Spokesman of the group, John Udoh who disclosed this to Journalists in Lafia alleged that Dr. Ayuwaje misappropriated millions of naira when he served as the Chairman of NMA in FCT in and Nasarawa state respectively.
He added that the member looted the association treasury in FCT and was indicted by the committee that probed his activities.
He added that he took his the Abuja branch of NMA to court that time having been indicted.
He further explained that the same Dr Ayuwaje also misappropriated the associations’ money while he served as its Chairman from 2012-2014.
He added that the committee that also probed his activities as NMA Chairman in Nasarawa uncovered a lot of corruption perpetrated by him.
“Some of the corruptions uncovered are physical collection of 5,000 naira cash from 450 of his colleagues in FMC keffi as strike levies to national Headquarters of NMA but diverted the entire money for personal use.
“Others includes; collection of millions of naira from Nasarawa State Government for an activity but diverted it without the knowledge of the association and several other fraudulent actions that were proven beyond reasonable doubt,” he added.
He therefore called on the Headquarters of NMA not to consider such a person with these bad records for any position at the national body of the association.
Reacting, Dr Ayuwaje denied all the allegations that it was unfounded.
He added that the petition was coming from his opponent who is just trying to tarnish his reputation.
He therefore threatened to file a case in the court against all the Doctors that have signed the petition.
It was reported that over 450 Medical Doctors practicing in Nasarawa have signed the petition.
