Abuja — The Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) may suspend the current strike today.
This is sequel to the meeting that the NMA executives and other stakeholders held in Abuja, Sunday.
The meeting which started on Sunday morning could not resolve the issues involved in the strike till the late hours of the night.
The NMA earlier invited the press to hold a briefing to announce the suspension of the strike at 3 p.m. but the briefing could not hold due to lack of harmony on some salient issues among the delegates at the meeting.
At few minutes to 5 p.m. an official of the NMA came to apologise to anxious journalists that the briefing had been rescheduled, saying: "We will get to you in the next 48 hours."
Those in attendance at the meeting included members of the board of trustees of the NMA, previous chairmen of the association and current national officers of the association.
Those present include Osahon Enabulele, Professor Akingugbe, Haliru Yahaya, Professor Gyo and many others.
A source at the meeting told Daily Independent that the aim of the meeting was to get the consent of all the stakeholders in the association so as to suspend the strike.
