FG expresses concern about the 21-day strike notice issued by the Nigerian Medical Association

The Federal Government, yesterday, expressed concern about the 21-day strike notice issued by the Nigerian Medical Association over the alleged failure of government to meet the demands of the striking resident doctors.

The Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, while responding to an inquiry by  correspondents on the threat by the NMA, said doctors should stop embarking on strikes at dangerous times and appealed to the resident doctors to call off their strike.

Ehanire said these as the Federal Government and the NMA disagreed on the 21-day ultimatum issued by the umbrella body of medical doctors in the country.
