The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has declared an indefinite strike and advised its members to stay away from work with effect from tomorrow, July 1, 2014.

A Channels TV report quoted the President of the association, Dr. Kayode Obembe, as telling a news conference in Abuja that the Federal Government has failed to address the demands of the association and the association was forced to take the action in order to save the health care delivery system from anarchy that is imminent in the health sector.

“The association is among other things demanding the stoppage of the appointment of non-doctors as directors and consultants,” the report said, adding:

“They are also demanding the immediate passage of the National Health Bill, appointment of a Surgeon-General of the Federation, the payment of N100,000 hazard allowance for medical doctors and the skipping of level 12 by medical and dental practitioners.

“The association had earlier in the month addressed a news conference at the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, where it advised the Federal Government to urgently address its 24-point demand or be prepared for the indefinite strike with effect from July 1.”
