Happy Anniversary to ANPA
I became active in ANPA after having been made the chairman of the NJ chapter in 2000.
Thanks to Dr & Dr. Mrs. Akin Kuyinu who planned the coup of making me, chairman.
I supported the concept of the organization and involved myself in the support of the founding members as stipulated by Prof. Ajovi Scott-Emuakpor. I became very active during the tenure of Dr. Olusegun Salako of blessed memories. We also conducted together the medical mission to Kaduna
with Dr. Enyi Okereke also of blessed memories when Nenadi Esther Usman was commissioner of
Health in Kaduna State before becoming the finance minister of Nigeria. Following this, I became the ANPA national treasurer under the presidency of Dr. Yele Aluko. I also led the memorable ANPA
mission team to Onitsha from NJ hosted by the Obi of Onitsha in 2005.
I have remained very active in ANPA especially as the first chair of the Advocacy committee which is
now chaired by Dr. Gboyega Osibowale. I continue to be active in the NJ chapter while concentrating
on activities that will enhance ANPA’s core vision of a “healthier Nigeria in a Healthier World”
My sincere congratulations to ANPA on this 25th anniversary!
