Accolades Trail Dr Aniekeme Uwah's Distinguished Service Award

More accolades have trailed the distinguished service award presented to Dr Aniekeme Uwah by the National President, Secretary and stakeholders of the Nigeria Medical Association during its 57 national conference and delegates meeting in calabar, Cross River State.  

Dr Aniekeme Uwah & Exco were received earlier today by the AKS commissioner for health, Dr Dominic Ukpong who described the award as typical of the Akwa Ibom Spirit- of first among equals . 
Expressing his Joy, Dr Ukpong said the award conferred on Dr Uwah as the most outstanding NMA chairman in the country was a demonstration of Gov Udom Emmanuel's Dakaada philosophy. He noted that the Akwa Ibom person was always a trail blazer and that Dr Uwah's feat had put Akwa Ibom on top of the politics of the Nigerian medical profession. He promised to present the award to the Governor, revealing that as a former NMA chairman himself, he knew the challenges in the NMA chairmanship office, stating that Dr Uwah's achievement was a no mean one. The commissioner admonished Dr Uwah to work harder to remain at the top. 

 Dr Aniekeme Uwah was also received by the Chief Medical Director, UUTH, Prof Etete Peters, who said Dr Aniekeme Uwah was being rewarded for a very wonderful performance in a short time as he was barely eight months into his two year tenure as NMA Chairman. Professor Etete explained that Dr Aniekeme Uwah was like the proverbial golden fish that had no hiding place. He added that the elders in the medical profession were happy they didn't make a mistake in handing over Power to the younger generation in the association. The courtesy visits afforded the stakeholders in the medical profession an opportunity to rub minds on other pressing issues militating against qualitative health care delivery in Akwa Ibom State.
