Nur Ajibola narrates her Painful traumatization and Victimization by OOUTH Nursing department-Management in Collaboration with Ogun State NANNM
Please follow as she narrate her ordeal: .
“I want to use this opportunity to inform all well meaning Nigerians and our vibrate Professional Nurses around the globe of the serial *Victimization and brutalization I have been subjected to since 2018* I became the unit chairman of University Graduates of Nursing Science Association *(UGONSA)*, State UGONSA Secretary and unit Treasurer of National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives *(NANNM).
Before this, I have been dutiful towards my patients and my fellow colleagues since 2006 I got employed into *OOUTH*
I have never had any misunderstanding with any one during these period of earnestly discharging my duties till date.
I was surprised that I am now being subjected to various physical, psychological and financial assaults by *Mrs Enaholo* the director of Nursing services (DDNS) and *Mr Awoyomi A.A* the director of Administration (DA) over Nursing Association matter that required justice.
To state the details of my ordeal, otherwise everything was fine before I became the unit NANNM Treasurer, State UGONSA Secretary and unit Chairman.
Immediately, I was elected as unit NANNM Treasurer, and on assumption to the office, handing over was done but without any documents like income and expenditure book, vouchers and impress book.

I then requested for them, since then they took me as enemy and treated me badly which prompted me to petition *Mrs Ogundein* for threatening to slap me.
Again I was removed from the Nurses WhatsApp platform on the *23rd of August 2019*, thereby cutting me off from our members who voted for me because I complained of not being allowed to ask question after 3 and half hours of meeting with *DDNS Enaholo* and *CNO Adekambi* shouted at me.
Through another means possible I was able to reach our Nurses who elected me to represent their interest as Treasurer. To better our Nursing profession,I joined *Anti-Quack Group on 22nd Dec, 2019*. The coordinator of the group honoured my contributions towards Nursing growth by inviting me to *a live program on OGTV on the 13th Jan, 2020* to speak on “effects of quackary” in Nursing in Ogun, which I granted too.
All my life,justice for Nurses is what I always agitate for, and that has put me in danger and their black book.
I invited UGONSA and Nursing Group Admins to help us intervene to make degree count in Nursing and promote graduate Nurses to ADNS, DDNS and DNS positions respectively.
National NANNM president was invited and he instructed the *DDNS Enaholo*, State NANNM Chairman *Mrs Solarin* and unit NANNM Chairman *Mrs Ogundehin* to return me to OOUTH Nurses WhatsApp platform and to make provisions to promote graduate Nurses on CNO to ADNS, DDNS and DNS respectively.
I want to tell you sir, that since the *22nd of April, 2020*, that the president instructed them till now they refused to honour his instructions.
The victimizations continued after *DDNS Enaholo* threatened me for agitating for justice for our Nurses and directed some elders to call *”my husband”* to warn me to keep shut on CNOs case.
I was to commence annual leave on the *22nd of July,2020* but I was made to be on duty by Nurse elders and later made roster for me to commence leave on the *27th of July, 2020*.
I communicated this to the management with evidence even though I was trying to protect my department.
I was surprised that the *Director of Administration Mr A.A Awoyomi* still deducted about #25,000 of my salary which I cannot ascertain the exact amount because it was not made known to me.
On the *3rd of September,2020* I had a major Operation at Babcock University Teaching Hospital and I spent huge amount of money without management checking on me not to talk of paying my hospital bill. Instead they effected the deduction on my money.
On *31 of August* we fixed a general meeting before I became sick.
I intended the meeting to be shifted but one of the CNO advised against shifting it, that my vice Chairman can hold the meeting or Secretary, I obliged.
I was called by the PRO and Secretary that the house requested for another meeting on the 4th September and I told them to present burning issues of lack of promotion among other things.
On the 4th September,2020 I was shocked & surprised to hear that the executive members and *Mrs Adeleke* was said to move the motion to dissolve the UGONSA executives in OOUTH on the premises *DDNS Enaholo* did not want me there as the OOUTH UGONSA Unit Chairman and OOUTH did not recognize us, this gross illegality was done in my absentia on the 1st Day Post Op of my surgery at Babcock University Teaching Hospital.
This was the message they sent me on my sick bed.
“Attention!! Attention!! Attention.
Following the conclusion from the general meeting held on 31st August 2020.This is to formally inform you that OOUTH UGONSA executive house had been dissolved dated this day 4th September 2020.
Nurs Ganiyu -vice Chairman
Nurs Shehu-Hammad -Secretary
Nurs Buraimoh -Treasurer
Nurs Aina -Asst Sec”
When others are creating more Powerful associations to fight their course and uplift their profession through alliance and synergies,
*NurseLeaders* are dissolving their association unilaterally for selfish & unprofessional reasons to drag the Noble Profession to the mud and keep us all in permanent darkness, too sad.
Going forward on September and October 2020, I decided to defend *Nurse Prince Tega* who was being victimized for pertaking in legitimate strike action called by NLC and NANNM. I tried to beg unit NANNM to prevail on the issue and free prince all was of no avail and also informed state NANNM Chairman *Mrs Solarin*.
On the 5th October,I was invited for an online radio interview program on our own *radio” Nurses Arise radio”* about my Activism and Unionism life and my impact in people’s lives especially Nursing Community.
Tega’s issue was raised and I said the truth about his case for justice to reign even I was still recuperating from the surgical operation.
I was surprised to be given query letter on the 3rd November,2020 by *Mr A. A. Awoyomi* the director of Administration for granting an online nurse’s radio interview program to discuss Nurses association matter as it affects our members.
I replied within 24 hours as expected of me.
To worsen the whole situation *the case of prince Tega is still in the court* and they gave me another letter today 11th November,2020 to *appear before panel set up by my intimidators and oppressions*
Please save my soul and family for these *unwarranted Victimizations,*
*AS NARRATED BY THE VICTIM PLEASE KINDLY SHARE*
