Zamfara State chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has suspended its one week strike it embarked on to protest poor remuneration.

The Chairman, Dr. Mannir Bature, announced the suspension in a statement in Gusau on Tuesday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the NMA on December 10 directed its members to embark on a one-week strike.

“I write to inform the public that the NMA has suspended the one-week strike it embarked upon last Thursday,’’ Bature said.

He said the suspension followed approval of the restoration of call duty allowances to doctors working with the government by Governor Bello Matawalle.

“This is the outcome of an extensive meeting between representatives of the government and NMA.

“Consequently, the solidarity strike embarked on by the NMA branch in Zamfara is hereby suspended.

“The NMA, Zamfara State chapter, wishes to commend its members for the support and cooperation.

“We register our profound appreciation to Governor Matawalle for his prompt intervention,’’ the NMA chairman said.
