The Kwara branch of the Nigeria Medical Association, NMA, has distanced itself from the nationwide strike proposed by the NLC on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.
Mohammed Kolade-Solagberu, the state chairperson of the association, said this in an interview with the news agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Ilorin on Monday, November 5, 2018.
NAN report that the organised labour plans to hold an indefinite strike across the country to press for a new minimum wage of 30,000.
But Kolade-Solagberu said that the branch would not join the Nigeria Labour Congress in the strike.
He said that the members would be at their duty posts to render necessary medical services to the people.
“Medical doctors in the state will be at their duty posts if the strike will hold,” he said.
