NMA, Imo State Chapter, Calls Off Strike After Meeting With Gov. Ihedioha.

The Nigeria Medical Association, Imo State Chapter has called off their two (2) months old strike after a meeting with  Governor Emeka Ihedioha.

Medical doctors in Imo state-owned hospitals and health facilities had begun an indefinite strike action in the state over what they termed ill and unfair treatments to the striking doctors from the state government.

It will be recalled that the doctors who were paid only 70% of their salaries by the past government were also in addition owed for three months.

The strike was in its first phase which involved all doctors in Imo State University Teaching Hospital, Orlu, Imo State Specialist Hospital, Umuguma, and Hospital Management Board.

They were already planning to embark on the second phase of the industrial action which would have all doctors in private hospitals and those in federal health centres in the state downing their tools until the new governor intervened prompting a call off.
