Medical doctors have again warned the presidency not to accept some of the demands of the striking health workers in federal hospitals.
President of Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), Doctor Francis Faduyile, who issued the warning in a statement, threatened that medical doctors in public hospitals will resume their suspended strike if some of the demands are met.
He listed the demands of health workers opposed by NMA as, the demands for pay parity, promotion to consultancy cadre with payment of specialist allowance, headship of departments and hospitals by their members
Faduyile explained that doctors are not opposed to the demand of health workers for career progression, but will resist any moves that violate the provisions of two agreements signed in 2014.
According to him, demand of the health workers to be appointed as consultants with specialist allowances could put them in charge of clinical at public hospitals.
