Ondo State Doctors End 68 Day Strike



The Ondo State chapter of the National Association of Government General Medical and Dental Practitioners (NAGGMDP) has ended its strike on Tuesday.

NAGGMDP had been on strike for 68 days following the state government’s failure to pay its members their 5 months salaries.

A communique issued and signed Dr. Dolani Gbelela and Ismaila Busari, Chairman and Secretary of the association respectively, said it agreed with the government representatives that a month salary will be paid within the next 2 weeks.

It also said that members decided to suspend the strike following an appeal from their ”Medical Elders” and the public sympathy.

An excerpt of the communique reads, “that the Ondo state government should pay at least a month salary every month.”
