The National Association of Government General Medical and Dental Practitioners (NAGGMDP), Ondo State Chapter Tuesday suspended its 68 days strike.

NAGGMDP embarked on a strike following the failure of state government to pay its members their five months salaries.

A communique issued and signed by its Chairman, who is also the State Chairman of Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), Dr. Dolani Gbelela and Secretary, Ismaila Busari said it agreed with the government representatives that a month salary will be paid within the next two weeks.

It also said that members decided to suspend the strike following an appeal from their Medical Elders and the public sympathy.

The communique reads, 'That the Ondo state government should pay at least a month salary every month.

'That the five months' salary arrears should be paid on or before October 31, 2016.

'That the elders of NMA appealed to members of NAGGMDP to suspend the above withdrawal of services based on trust and compassionate grounds.'
