The Chief Medical Director (CMD) of Taraba State Specialist Hospital, Dr Aliyu Zakari, is to appear before the Taraba State House of Assembly next Tuesday in the morning to answer questions over his recent interview with Daily Trust on the health status of Governor Danbaba Suntai.
Confirming the invitation to our correspondent, Zakari said he would present himself before the House as a law abiding citizen but gave some conditions for his appearance before the committee set up by the House to investigate him.
The conditions he gave include that the sitting must be done openly and members of the press should be allowed to cover whatever transpired during the session with the investigating committee.
He also said that a representative from the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) must also be present as well, adding that only those from the NMA who best understand the code of ethic of the profession can truly point out where the code has been violated.
“I spoke with the President of NMA recently and he said I should be praised rather than be crucified”, he added.
