month Medical Doctors' nationwide strike in the overall interest of the

generality of the citizenry.

when the nation is battling to curb the spread of the dreaded Ebola Virus,

which he noted is fast becoming an epidemic.
“People should always find amicable ways of resolving crisis. I want to

commend the leadership of Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), for having

found a way round the issues that led to the industrial action in the

first place.
“I am happy that the strike has been called off at this very crucial time,

when the guidance and expertise of our medical personnel are most crucial

in containing the Ebola Virus,” he said.
Amosun also commended the efforts of the NMA National President, Dr.

Kayode Obembe, the Senate President, David Mark, as well as others who

were able to prevail on the concerned parties for the favourable outcome.
