The National Association of Government General Medical and Dental Practitioners (NAGGMDP), Ondo State Chapter, yesterday suspended its 68 days strike.
NAGGMDP embarked on a strike following the failure of the government to pay its members their five months salaries.
A communique issued and signed by its chairman, who is also the chairman of Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), Dr. DolaniGbelela and Secretary, IsmailaBusari, said it agreed with the government representatives that a month salary will be paid within the next two weeks.
It added that members decided to suspend the strike following an appeal from their medical elders and the public.
The communique added that it was agreed that the govern-ment should pay at least a month salary every month.
“That the five months’ salary arrears should be paid on or before October 31, 2016. “That the elders of NMA appealed to members of NAGGMDP to suspend the above withdrawal of services based on trust and compassionate grounds,” the communique said.
