Strike: Doctors Prioritizing Patient Care Over Union Involvement – NMA

PLACE YOUR ADVERT HERE

The Nigerian Medical Association has made it clear that it is an independent entity and not a part of the Organised Labour movement. Its members are continuing to provide essential healthcare services to patients nationwide.

The NMA’s position comes in response to certain media reports that claimed doctors were not participating in the ongoing indefinite strike initiated by the Organised Labour.

In a press release signed by Dr. Benjamin Egbo, the National Secretary-General of the NMA, it was emphasized that while the association is not formally linked to the Organised Labour, it empathizes with the challenges and difficulties faced by Nigerians during this time.

“The NMA has not declared a strike action, hence doctors will be at their duty posts to attend to clients who desire to use health services.

“The NMA uses this avenue to call on Government as well as all stakeholders to consider the plight of the average Nigerian and do everything possible to address the issues that have led to the present impasse,” the statement partly read.
