‘Doctors’ Seal Will Eliminate Quackery, Malpractice’

The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has provided more explanation why it introduced a Seal/Stamp for all approved doctors, hospitals and medical reports.NMA President Mike O. Ogirima, and Secretary General, Dr. Yusuf Tanko Sununu, said the Seal would ultimately help eliminate quacks and various forms of malpractice from the medical profession.

They said some of the interesting features of the Seal/Stamp were its ability to identify practitioners by their universities and year of graduation in addition to their practice license number.Ogirima and Tanko in a media release said: “Revisiting the issue of NMA seal is important because the medical profession in this country has to heal itself if the government is not interested. There is no policy that is perfect in the world but I have learnt in life that the easiest thing to do is to find fault. I have equally learnt not to criticize except I have an alternate plan on that particular issue.

“The issue of a seal is quite timely and after a lot of deliberation and tinkering with Stamp versus seal and modifications this was settled for. It was not a taken from the beer parlour joint under the influence of something; it took men’s brain and time.“The seal/stamp becomes important if we saw the Medical Reports that made its way to National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Orientation camps last year, Some coming from ‘first generation teaching hospitals’, with young ladies afflicted with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) and signed by a ‘doctor’. Some were the same letter with different patients name circulating in more than one state.
