The hope for an early resolution of the strike called by doctors working in government hospitals dimmed on Wednesday as a meeting between the Federal Government and the Nigerian Medical Association in Abuja ended in a deadlock.
This is as reports from across the country indicated that the strike embarked upon by the doctors on Tuesday worsened the situation in the hospitals.
The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Pius Anyim, on Wednesday met with the NMA officials, led by its president, Dr. Kayode Obembe. The Minister of State for Health, Dr. Khaliru Alhassan; and the Minister of Labour and Productivity, Mr. Emeka Wogu, attended the meeting.
Obembe told one of our correspondents around 9.30pm on Wednesday that the NMA officials also met with the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Health, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa. Senator Chris Ngige was also said to have been in the meeting with the doctors.
The NMA boss said the association had not reached any agreement with the government and that the strike would continue.
