Medical doctors in the employment of Kwara State said they have suspended their industrial action. They suspended the strike at 6pm yesterday.

The doctors under the aegis of National Association of Government General Medical and Dental Practitioners (NAGGMDP) in the state had on Monday last week commenced seven days warning strike across the state.

The association said it had served the government series of ultimatum concerning member’s welfare.

“This is to give room for engagement with the government on some of their agitation including good conditions of service, especially in the payment of new remuneration to the members of the union.”

State Chairman of the association, Dr Saka Agboola, announced the suspension of the industrial action after an emergency congress of the members.

Dr Agboola said the doctors decided to suspend the strike due to the favorable disposition of the state government to negotiate with them.

He also acknowledged the suffering that patients went through due to the warning strike.

Agboola added that the doctors were not coerced or intimidated to suspend the strike.
