Medical doctors in the services of Kwara State Government have suspended the seven day warning strike they embarked upon, to press for improved welfare and working conditions.
Chairman of the National Association of Government General Medical and Dental Practitioners, Kwara State Branch, Dr Saka Agboola announced this after an emergency congress by members of the Union in Ilorin, the State capital.
Dr Agboola explained that the suspension will take effect by 6pm on Saturday, this evening, when members would be expected to resume duty.
He said the doctors decided to suspend the strike action which had been on in all state owned medical facilities, in the past five days, due to the favorable disposition of the state government to negotiate with them.
Dr Agboola added that the state government did not in anyway intimidated the association to suspend the warning strike, but an unanimous understanding by the association to work out things together, with the state government.
