Doctors in public health institutions have suspended their nationwide strike.

The National President of the Nigerian Medical Association, Dr. Osahon Enabulele in a statement in Lagos on Sunday directed all members of the association working in the public sector to resume work on Monday in their various hospitals across the nation.

Doctors in public health institutions had embarked on a five- day nationwide strike last week to protest acts of injustices against their members and underfunding of the sector.

Enabulele stated that the five day warning strike was suspended in the spirit of the upcoming yuletide and also to give government time to resolve its demands.

He, however, noted that doctors would embark on an indefinite strike by January 6, 2013, if government fails to fulfill its demands.

Enabulele stated,” We call on all Nigerian doctors in the public health sector to resume full services with effect from 8am on Monday 23rdDecember, 2013.
 
“We also wish to use this opportunity to remind government that Nigerian doctors shall not hesitate to commence a full blown strike action from 8am on Monday, 6thJanuary 2014, if government does not satisfactorily resolve the demands of the Nigerian Medical Association. We therefore call on the Local, State and Federal levels of Government to take note of this notice.”

While thanking Nigerians for the solidarity,the association called on well-meaning Nigerians to assist in the resolution of the demands of the NMA.

It's one thing to suspend the strike,and another to actually get back to work.

Other doctors in other lands would have stood their ground. Yes its a good idea to return to work - after all they are saving lives - however they appear indecisive about their demands!
