This was disclosed by CNSHPA spokesperson, Mr. Kyari Caleb, while briefing newsmen on Friday in Lafia.

Caleb, who is also the state Chairman, Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists of Nigeria, explained that the suspension of the strike followed interventions by major stakeholders in the state.

“The agreement to suspend the strike was reached on Friday (today) at the congress of the coalition, following appeals by the Traditional Council of Chiefs in the state, led by its Chairman and Emir of Lafia, Sidi Bage,” he said.

Caleb, however, directed members to resume work immediately to allow well-meaning individuals to continue to mediate on grey areas.

Meanwhile, the state Chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association has dissociated itself from the purported agreement reached with the state government and the organized labour.

Dr. Sabo Emmanuel said NMA was never part of the negotiation with the state government and was thrown aback to be mentioned as part of the negotiation team which led to the earlier suspension of indefinite strike by the organized labour.
