NEW YEAR MESSAGE TO WACP

As we commence the New Year of 2021, I would like to wish all Fellows, Members and the Secretariat of our august and beloved College a very happy New Year and continued success of our College. 

The year 2020 will go down in our history as the most challenging for our College. The COVID-19 pandemic proverbially put the spanner in the works. Having had to cancel the examinations in April we were at the brink of cancelling the combined examinations in October which would have put us in unchartered territory as never before had we approached examination month with three sets of candidates. However with the sheer willpower and creativity of our Secretary-General and his indefatigable staff, by the grace of God, we were able to hold successful examinations in October. 

The New Year will no doubt bring its own challenges. Events of 2020 have left the College in a difficult financial position. There were fewer examination candidates and increased expenditure on COVID-19 measures. The savings from fewer examiners and less travelling costs did not offset our reduced income. In addition we must now seriously start thinking of finishing the tower block of our Abuja building to start bringing in much needed income to the College. To this end, I implore our Fellows to make their contributions towards the building fund to help realise this project. 

The College constitution should be amended to take into account the many changes that have already occurred in the structure and functions of the College and also to make way for more bold and ambitious concepts such as a Diaspora Chapter to expand the influence of our college beyond the boundaries of ECOWAS and benefit from its potential financial reward. 

As I take over the Presidency of our College, I do so with humility and absolute dedication. I call on all Chapters to play their role to advance the development of the College but more so to our largest and most influential Chapter Nigeria to continue to show leadership and guidance to help shape the future direction of this noble institution. I once more wish you all a very happy and fulfilling New Year. 

 

Dr. Durodami Radcliffe Lisk FWACP 

Since 1976, we’ve been responsible for postgraduate specialist training of doctors in the five Anglophone West African countries, to increase equity and achievement for all candidates.
