Kogi State Medical Doctors Embark on Indefinite Strike over Unpaid Salaries

Nigerian Medical AssociationThe Kogi chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has reportedly directed its members to embark on an indefinite strike starting on Wednesday over government’s failure to pay doctors’ salaries. An official announcement made by its Chairman, Dr. Tijani Godwin, and Secretary, Dr. Zubair Kabiru, after an emergency congress on Tuesday in Lokoja.

The medical doctors were angry at government’s refusal to clear their pending nine months salary and also decried the consistent deductions in their salaries and arrears. The association went further to advise doctors intending to pick up employment with the Kogi Government to be “very cautious” as many of their colleagues were owed huge sums.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the NMA embarked on a warning strike in December 2016 but suspended the action after the government promised to pay their salaries.

The government, however, hasn’t paid, forcing the doctors to go on strike again.
