The immediate past President of the Association of Resident Doctors, University of Calabar Teaching Hospital, Dr. Antigha Cobham has charged the new Chief Medical Director of the hospital, Prof. Ikpeme Ikpeme on the need to cultivate and galvanize all the different professional bodies, irrespective of affiliation.

Antigha made this call today in a ‘Congratulatory letter,’ written to the Prof. Ikpeme, where he stated that incorporating all bodies would help reposition the hospital to deliver efficient service to Cross Riverians and Nigerians at large.

On his appointment, Antigha said, “I am greatly honoured to join the ever increasing list of individuals, associations and corporate organizations in congratulating you on your recent appointment and subsequent assumption of office as the Chief Medical Director (CMD) UCTH, Calabar,” even as he wishes that his tenure would birth historic achievements.

Speaking about the excitement and expectations of member staff, Cobham further remarked, “… I can attest to the fact that there is a special excitement within the rank and file of members of both ARD-UCTH Calabar and NARD Nigeria following the announcement of your appointment as CMD UCTH Calabar.

“The reason for this is not far fetched, judging from the fact that you are a life member of ARD-UCTH, which you served in the capacity as two term POTARD (1997-1999) and one time President of NARD Nigeria (2000-2001). It is little wonder, then, that your appointment will rekindle the level of expectation currently expressed amongst the Resident Doctors of renewed beginnings in the relations between ARD-UCTH, NARD Nigeria and the management/Board of UCTH Calabar.

“In addition, it is the believe amongst Residents, that the challenges which have over the years presented themselves as hindrances to effective residency training within our institution, will be addressed with a continued spirit of openness and accommodation, thereby leading to a return of long lasting industrial harmony,” he added.

While concluding, the Senior Registrar, Department of Paediatrics and Child Health prayed for strength and wisdom upon the new CMD and his management team.
