In his remarks, Dr. Enabulele thanked members of the WMA for reposing great confidence in him and electing him to head such an important global platform. He assured them that he will, under no circumstance, betray the confidence reposed in him.

Dr. Enabulele equally assured members that though he is the sole African representative serving on the WMA Council, his global work as SMAC Chairman will be carried beyond Nigeria and Africa, for the benefit of citizens of the world. In his words, “My team and I shall work tirelessly to provide far reaching solutions to global issues bordering on social-medical affairs, including right based issues in healthcare.

Dr. Enabulele is a Chief Consultant Family Physician and a former President of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA). As President of the NMA, he was lauded for the reforms implemented during his tenure, particularly in the area of reforms in the healthcare system, the initiation of a free Medical Mission in the year 2012 that has attended to the healthcare needs of over 70, 000 indigent Nigerians, the welfare and working conditions of doctors in the West African country, amongst others.

Between 2017 and April 25, 2019, Dr. Osahon Enabulele served as a member of the five-member Policy Review Committee of the World Medical Association (the only African member of the Committee). He is also a three time nominee for the office of President of the World Medical Association.

He is currently the Vice President of the Commonwealth Medical Association and the incoming President of the Commonwealth Medical Association. He is also the coordinator of the Coalition of African National Medical Associations (made up of all National Medical Associations in the African region).

SOME OF DR. OSAHON ENABULELE’S ACHIEVEMENTS AS PRESIDENT
OF THE NIGERIAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION (MAY 4, 2012-MAY 3, 2014):
(1) The Unconditional Recall of the 788 Physicians who were unjustly
sacked from work/public service by the Lagos State Government of
Nigeria in the year 2012, for simply expressing their legitimate labour rights.
(2) During his tenure as President of the Nigerian Medical Association
(NMA), the NMA association hosted the 1st West African Regional
Meeting anchored and chaired by the then President of WMA, Dr.

(3) Institution of regular four monthly conduct of Free Comprehensive

flagged off one of such National Medical Missions.
(4) Improved welfare, working conditions/conditions of service for
Nigerian doctors and restoration of the relativity principle in the
determination of wages in Nigeria’s public healthcare sector.
The restoration of the relativity principle made a clear distinction between
physicians’ pay and those of other health workers. Indeed, the current wage
benefits of Nigerian Physicians resulted from the sustained and focused
negotiation efforts of the NMA during Dr. Enabulele’s tenure as President.
Similarly, a new scheme of service for Nigerian doctors was proposed in 2013
during Dr. Enabulele’s Presidency.
(5) The convocation/organization of an all-embracing and historic 1st
NMA National Health Summit which was successfully held in Asaba, Delta
State of Nigeria from January 20-27, 2013. This summit which was the first in

over 2, 000 physicians. It developed a blueprint for repositioning the Nigerian
Medical Association and Nigeria’s health care delivery system.
(6) Institution and organization of free health checks for Physicians at all
national meetings and activities of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA).
(7) Institution of Reforms in the Nigerian Medical Association; including
the initiation of a holistic review of NMA’s constitution which was
eventually passed in the year 2017; Reform of NMA Physicians’ week with
selection of indigenous contemporary themes for the week.

Strategic Studies (a foremost Leadership and Management Training Institute
in Nigeria to which NMA nominates her members to undergo leadership
training annually).
7

campaigns in Nigeria, with the Speaker of the Federal House of
Representatives (National Assembly) as its face.
(10) The successful initiation and organization of the NMA Maiden
National Sports Games for physicians, held in Eket, Akwa-Ibom State of
Nigeria between the 16th and 22nd of February, 2014. Up to four editions of the
Games have so far being held.
(11) Public campaigns and phenomenal push for the passage of Nigeria’s
2012 National Health Bill (NHB), which led to the enactment of
Nigeria’s first comprehensive national legal framework (National Health Act
2014) for the regulation, development and management of Nigeria’s health
system).
(12) The conceptualization and development of the framework for the
NMA National Quiz and Essay Contest, the maiden edition of which was
organized in November, 2017.
(13) The historic push for the reconstitution of the Governing Council of

unjustly dissolved by the Federal Government of Nigeria in 2011).
This led to the inauguration of the MDCN Governing Council on Monday, 25th
November, 2013 (a day after Dr. Enabulele lost his Father).

professions in Nigeria.
