Nigerian Medical Association Suspends Strike

Nigerian doctors finally suspend their strike action after weeks of striking.


After over a month of striking, the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has finally suspended their strike.

The group took to Twitter to make the announcement in the early hours of this morning.

The doctors who embarked on the strike from the 1st of July reportedly suspended the strike following the outcome of voting by members.

Out of 265 total votes cast, 199 voted for suspension, 96 voted against while persons abstained.

It would be recalled that the federal government had sacked all the resident doctors and suspended all residency training programs in the country following their refusal to call of the strike.

The doctors are expected to release a statement addressing this latest development as the day unfolds.
