The NMA’s total strike was coming on the heels of the suspension, last
Wednesday, of the indefinite strike earlier embarked upon by the
Organised Labour in the state.

The doctors’ indefinite strike was declared following the expiration
of the 7-day warning strike embarked upon by the state chapter of the
Nigerian Medical Association (NMA).
In a statement signed by both the state NMA Chairman and Secretary,
Dr. Obekpa Obekpa and Dr. Nwaeze Chukwuemeka, respectively, the congress
expressed gross dissatisfaction and the subversive roles of some of its
members in the course of the warning strike.
