The Nigerian Medical Association has urged the Federal Government to implement the agreement on salary increases to curb the brain drain crippling the health sector.

This followed the recent reports that in 2023, the association had given the Federal Government till January 31, 2024, to meet its demands or risk industrial action in the health sector.

The Chairman, NMA, Lagos State chapter, Dr Benjamin Olowojebutu, said the association was committed to the agreement during the meeting in Abuja, and failure to honour it could lead to a nationwide strike.

Olowojebutu, in an interview, stated that this was not the right time for a strike and that the government should act on what had been agreed.

He said, “I speak as NMA chairman of the Lagos State chapter. This is the directive of NMA national. However, we are all committed to this and the next decision we made during a meeting in Abuja is strike. Hopefully, we pray that does not happen.

“If there is no increase in salary, we will go on a nationwide strike. We pray that this will not happen because this is not the right time.”
