|NMA Strike May Linger-anyim by MrsAwesome: 6:14am On Aug 22, 2014|
The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Sen. Anyim Pius Anyim Pius,
has said a delay in the submission of the report of a presidential committee on the
health sector is responsible for the apparent delay and deadlock in the ongoing Seven
week old doctors’ strike.
The Yayale Ahmed chaired presidential committee of experts on inter professional
relations in the public health sector was set up to draw up a workable document to
address perennial rivalry in the sector. But its work has been hampered by the on-going
doctors’ strike, as negotiations with the doctors couldn’t continue on the orders of the
Sen. Anyim said, “We have insisted that we couldn’t reopen negotiations with them when
this committee is still at work, and likely in the next few weeks you would conclude your
Yayale Ahmed said, “The importance of our assignment cannot be over-emphasised, we
have been given this task and the nation is patiently waiting like patients in hospitals.”
Anyim also expressed concern that other professionals in the health sector are also
threatening to embark on strike actions.
Doctors in Nigeria’s public hospitals have been on strike since the first of July and the
meeting was set up to resolve the issues in Nigerian health sector but if what was said
by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation is to be considered seriously, then
the strike may linger for a while pending when the report of the committee is ready in a
couple of weeks.

Now a committee has to submit their report before we move forward to further negotiations, the committee was set up by a committee established some years back.
No end in sight.

Let's hope they come up with a good workable report that will bring lasting solution to the public health sector...
