The Nigerian Medical Association has pleaded striking doctors to immediately return to work and assist in fighting against the spread of deadly Coronavirus in the country.

 

President of the association, identified as Dr Francis Adedayo Faduyile, made the call at a press briefing in Abuja.

”We direct all medical associations that have declared industrial actions against their management to suspend all actions as the National NMA shall take over the dispute and interact with the different organs and agencies of the government. In this regard, the Association of Resident Doctors in the Federal Capital Territory, Kaduna and also in Gombe state as well as NMA in Cross Rivers state are to report back to work and treat Nigerians” he said

 

However, it was reported that the Association of Resident Doctors in Abuja, Gombe and Kaduna states, embarked on the strike action this month over unpaid allowances and salaries.  Members of the NMA in Cross Rivers state also went on strike in March over the level of insecurity in the state.
