In Taraba state, resident doctors have suspended their 2-month-old strike action. According to the President of the association of resident doctors, Dr Gabriel Ahmed, he said the decision followed several meetings, dialogue and discussions with relevant stakeholders in the state.

Ahmed said the congress of the association agreed to suspend the strike and support efforts at curtailing the increasing cases of COVID-19 disease and Lassa fever within the state while noting that Governor Darius Ishaku has met some of the demands made by the association, while some other demands are receiving attention.

Members of the association had on Dec. 24, 2020, embarked on an indefinite strike action over the Taraba state Government’s inability to honour and implement the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed in September 2020. The strike was also declared over lack of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for doctors; lack of running cost to the secondary healthcare facilities; and non-implementation of 100 per cent adjusted Consolidated Medical Salary Structure among others
