Medical doctors in Bauchi State yet to join NMA strike



NMA cautions public against patronising quack doctors

Medical doctors at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) Azare, Bauchi State, on Wednesday, said they had yet to join the ongoing nationwide strike by the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA).

The NMA chairman of the state chapter, Dr Sani Giade, made this disclosure in an interview with our correspondent in Bauchi.

He said the doctors stayed action on the strike pending an outcome of a scheduled meeting between the union and the Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole and the Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige.

Giade said the meeting was scheduled to hold on Wednesday with officials of the NMA and the National Association of Resident Doctors of Nigeria (NARD).

“By not embarking on the strike was a deliberate action to wait for the final outcome of the meeting between government officials and officials of the unions.

“The resident doctors at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Teaching Hospital (ATBU TH), have already begun the strike and they are more in number than the doctors at the FMC Azare.

He, however, expressed the hope that at the end of the day, things would be fine.

Giade said that the services being provided by the FMC doctors would not go unnoticed, as it would impact greatly on the lives and well being of patients.
