Doctors In Kogi To Begin STRIKE Tomorrow


The Kogi chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has directed its members to embark on an indefinite strike over government’s failure to pay doctors’ salaries.

A communique jointly signed by its Chairman, Dr Tijani Godwin, and Secretary, Dr Zubair Kabiru, after an emergency congress on Tuesday in Lokoja, said that the strike would commence on Wednesday.

The NMA expressed disappointment over government’s inability to pay the doctors’ salaries and arrears as agreed two months ago and wondered why it was difficult for the government to fulfill basic commitments.

“We have presented our demands to the government, but none has been met; we are left with no other option than to go on strike,” the association said.
