The zonal officer of the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria in a statement posted on facebook following the public and vehement outcry by Registered Nurses across the country had this to say on the Viral Video making the rounds about the Omega Power Ministry presenting some in white and trained for just "3 weeks" as nurses to its congregation. Omega Power Ministry has her international HQ at OPM Close, off Eliozu road
Portharcourt or at No 9 Olutosin ajayi street, Oshodi, Isolo, Ajao Estate Lagos.
Find below the memo:
OPM TRAINING OF NURSES IS PURELY QUACKERY.
I want to assure Nurses of this Country that the Council is aware of the issue and we are going to do everything possible to investigate and get to the root of the matter and necessary actions taken.
The OPM founder is aware of the laws that it is the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria that has the powers by law to accredit Schools of Nursing and Midwifery to train Nurses and Midwives in Nigeria and also to licence them to practice.
We (Council) are putting modalities to handle the matter, please Nurses be rest assured of the Council's assurance in protecting our Noble Profession.
NMCN Zonal officer,
South South, Port Harcourt
UPDATED: The article has been corrected from the misleading impression it gave that it was a "Memo" instead of it being a "statement" made on a facebook page. Our sincere apologies.
