0

The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) and its affiliate, the Lagos State Medical Guild, Wednesday suspended their indefinite strike.

According to the secretary, NMA Lagos State chapter, Dr Babajide Saheed, the decision was reached at a joint meeting between the NMA and the Medical Guild.
 Saheed said work resumes Thursday at 8am, urging doctors to go back to their duty posts.
“The strike is hereby suspended. Full services resume by 8.00am today,” he said.
He said a committee has been set up to ensure the implementation of the promises made by the state government.

The issue, he said, will be reviewed two weeks after the governorship elections.
Saheed said doctors’ focus is centered on the patients, adding that they are committed to offering them the best care.
It would be recalled that the Medical Guild embarked on an indefinite strike on March 16 to demand for three days salary in April and May 2012 and August and September, last year.
The NMA joined the Medical Guild on indefinite strike on Monday as a form of solidarity.
