Message of The National NANNM President on 2019 Nurses Week Celebration by Idowu Olabode : May 09, 2019, 05:37:57 PM
 I wish to sincerely extend my very special regards to and felicitate with nurses and midwives across the nation and even beyond on this very auspicious occasion of this year (2019) International Day of Midwives and the International Nurses’ Week celebration. I pray that our immaculate appearances at all levels of our operations and dimensions will continue to manifest. It becomes very imperative for me to take a little time off my tightly scheduled field studies to felicitate with my professional colleagues as we associate with and join the global community to celebrate this significant commemoration.

It is pertinent to say that change should start with us as transformation is hovering around us. The global community continues to move on and time as well as tide wait for no one. The world of the nursing is today a fast changing one with dynamic and new trends being introduced on a daily basis. Nigerian nurses cannot afford to be left behind. We must therefore be ready to finance greatness if we really desire to be great. 

On the national front, we must be aware that we exist within the reality and amidst a diversity that cut across specializations, employers, geopolitical diversity, personal views and ideologies which we must be ready to understand and manage successfully and positively. Just like we are first and foremost sons and daughters of Adam and Eve and no differences should do us apart. The earlier we understand and internalize the fact that we are first and foremost, we all are nurses before factors such as specialties, academic qualifications and employment statuses e.t.c. stratified us, the better for us individually as professionals and collectively as a profession.

I equally want to urge us to take leadership as a sacred trust, manage it classically and diplomatically to ensure progress, unity and positive growth and development to address the critical issue of policy and strategy as it affect our leadership. Success and progress are clearly linked to leadership and our contributions will determine the attainment of our dream status. This is what we contribute to nurturing our profession, the debt we owe ourselves and the coming generation. We should passionately strive to source for a legacy to lay down for our tomorrow.
I wish all of us to get prepared in our numbers to attend the centennial celebration of International Labour Organization the only agent of United Nations that accommodate the views, ideology and contributions of the labour movements and strategically in defence of the welfare of members of global labour movements. Equally this year’s ICN celebration of nurses’ week holds in Singapore, our presence at the biennial celebration is key and vital to nursing and nurses’ relevance, recognition and advancement in all spheres of the struggle for professional autonomy and wellbeing.

This speech cannot be completed without the mention of the gruesome murder of our sister and colleague - Maria Amadi, the HoD Nursing of the Federal NeuroPsychiatric Hospital in Enugu. This is a clarion call on the law enforcement agents to do a thorough job to bring to book the culprits for the justice to be done and also to have been seen as done. I pray that God grant her family and friends the fortitude to bear the loss and grant her repose in the abode of God almighty. It is equally on this note that we need to remind the FGN about our professional colleagues that are still in bondage of the insurgents and call goes to President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR, to intensify efforts to secure their release. It is our fervent prayer that before

long they regain their freedom to be united with their families and the rest of us. We are also shockingly alarmed at the very recent abduction of another of our colleague, Dr. Emon Duke, the Head of Department of University of Calabar who was abducted alongside her 15 year old daughter on the night of the 5th of May. It is disheartening to find that such ugly occurrences where nurses and midwives are the target of abductions and insurgency. It is more heart shattering that this particular one occurred on the day the whole world celebrated the International Day of the Midwives. We strongly condemn these mindless acts and call on the federal government and relevant security agencies to swing into action and take necessary steps to ensure their release and that of others still in captive. 

I wish us a fantastic celebration and besiege Allah (God) Almighty to keep us and protect us till next year. Wishing all of prosperity in all our undertakings.   
Comrade. Abdrafiu Alani Adeniji {Triple A}. President NANNM, VP NLC and Chairperson WAHSUN
