The Doctors in Benue State, on Thursday, embarked on an indefinite strike over what they described as inability of the government and the management of the Federal Medical Center (FMC) Makurdi, to meet their demands.

The NMA’s total strike was coming on the heels of the suspension, last Wednesday, of the indefinite strike earlier embarked upon by the Organised Labour in the state.

The doctors’ indefinite strike was declared following the expiration of the 7-day warning strike embarked upon by the state chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA).

In a statement signed by both the state NMA Chairman and Secretary, Dr. Obekpa Obekpa and Dr. Nwaeze Chukwuemeka, respectively, the congress expressed gross dissatisfaction and the subversive roles of some of its members in the course of the warning strike.
