The Nurses Association of Jamaica, NAJ has demanded an apology from its former President, Edith Allwood-Anderson, over what it says are derogatory statements made about the current executive.
The NAJ President, Janet Coore-Farr, says the association will deal with the substantive comments made by Mrs. Allwood-Anderson, if an apology is not forthcoming by the end of today.
Mrs. Allwood-Anderson says the NAJ executive is seeking to revoke her position as President Emeritus.
She’s alleging that benefits which she enjoys by virtue of that position, have also been terminated by the executive.
The firebrand former leader, says she’s being persecuted because she dared to speak about breaches of the NAJ’s constitution being perpetrated by members of the current leadership.
But according to Mrs. Coore-Farr she’s not yet ready to respond to those claims.
She says in light of Mrs. Allwood-Anderson’s 40 years of service to the NAJ, she’s being given a chance to defuse the situation.
