Former 2nd Vice-President of Nigerian Bar Association, Dr. Monday Ubani has threatened to drag the federal government before the court for allegedly renewing the appointment of the Medical Director of Federal Medical Centre, Abeokuta, Ogun State, Prof Adewale Musa-Olomu despite an indictment against him.
Addressing a press conference in Lagos, Ubani stated that Prof Musa-Olomu who was appointed as MD of FMC, Abeokuta in 2017, ought not to have had his reappointment renewed since he was indicted for age falsification, gross misconduct and abuse of office by the board of medical centre two months ago.
Ubani noted that it is unfortunate that Prof Musa-Olomu who is also being investigated by the Nigerian Police, FCID, and is currently on administrative bail was not asked to step aside by the Federal Ministry of Health but was rewarded with a renewal of his appointment.
According to Ubani who vowed to file a suit against the FG if the appointment is not reversed, said such action negates the principle upon which the current administration under President Muhammadu Buhari claims to stand for.
He said: “President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration was widely voted into power for first and second term because the president assured Nigerians that he will fight corruption in any form in the country to a stand still.
“I want to use this opportunity to remind the APC led administration that what just happened in FMC, Abeokuta where a man who ought to have retired from service but clearly altered his age to get another term in office, is another form of corruption which if not reviewed, will certainly dent the image of this administration.
“I want to presume that the president personally may not be aware of what has happened in FMC Abeokuta with the connivance and collusion of the Federal Ministry of Health, but I believe it is not too late to revisit the matter.
“The old practice where public servants flagrantly violate the Public Service Regulations and Government Circular without punishment must be discouraged.
