Imo state chapter of the Nigeria Medical Association NMA, has called off its two months strike after meeting with the state governor, Emeka Ihedioha.
NMA chairman, Kyrian Duruewuru, who spoke after a closed-door meeting with the governor, said the association has called off the indefinite strike with an immediate effect.
According to the chairman, the governor agreed to address the issues which made the NMA in the state to embark on the strike two months ago.
Duruewuru said they called off the strike so as to give the new administration in the state the benefit of a doubt that it would fix the concerns of the association.
The NMA chairman said apart from payment of the full salaries which the governor promised, Ihedioha, equally agreed to pay three months’ salary arrears to the members of the association.
