The Association of Medical Laboratory Technicians and Assistant of Nigeria (AMELTAN) has directed all its National Vice Presidents (NVPs) in the six geopolitical zones to coordinate, organised and conduct elections within three months.
The Association in a communique issued by Comrade Akinwumi Kazeem, its
National Publicity Secretary, after its inaugural NWC meeting in Abuja recently said the elections which is meant to enhance and maintain a unified operational structure for all organs of administration of the association will be supervised by various Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria councils.
The communique said in the interim, the NWC has approved the appointment of a three-member caretaker committee for the administration of governance at all the states levels for continuity.
“The NWC in session upholds the commitment of the Chief Emmanuel Isijana Samuel-led leadership towards an accelerated growth of the association. Towards enhancing sustenance of this, the meeting adopted a blue print for a more focused administrative operation.”
The Association further described as illegal, a meeting held by a fragment of her members on February 14-15, 2020, at the Medical and Health Workers Union, Kano state secretariat complex.
“Pertinent to submit further that the organisers and players of the Kano meeting are consistently committed to pull down the Chief Emmanuel Isijana Samuel-administration.”
