President, Nigerian Medical Association, NMA Francis Faduyile has advised the Federal Government to urgently meet the demands of doctors under the aegis of the National Association of Resident Doctors to avert another strike.
Faduyile said that the government should do the needful and give the doctors their entitlements to avoid disruption of healthcare services in Nigeria.
Meanwhile, the Association of Resident Doctors of Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital, Amaku Awka in Anambra State began an indefinite strike over poor condition of service and lack of health infrastructure.
The resident doctors said they were embarking on the strike over the inability of the state government to honour the agreement it signed with the body on January 17, 2019 during its warning strike.
