Kogi doctors suspend strike for dialogue
Kogi State Gov. Yahaya Bello: doctors want dialogue

The Kogi chapter of  Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has suspended its 10-day old strike to give room for dialogue with the government.

In a statement after its Ordinary General Meeting (OGM) in Lokoja on Saturday, signed by its Chairman, Dr. Godwin Tijani, the association said the decision to suspend the strike was unanimously taken to honour the Kogi paramount ruler, Attah Igala, and other eminent  stakeholders, for their intervention.

“NMA has agreed to suspend its strike for two weeks to enable prominent personalities and stakeholders, mediate.

“Since the Attah of Igala, NMA National President and our honourable members of the House of Assembly have requested the association to suspend the action and give them time to intervene, we have no choice than to honour them.

“We will reconvene in a forthnight to decide on the way forward if no positive progress is  made and our demands are not met.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Kogi chapter of NMA had directed its members to embark on indefinite strike from May 3, alleging government’s failure to pay doctors’ salaries and arrears, among other demands.
