Kogi state Government threatens to terminate appointment of workers that participate in doctors’ strike

The Kogi Government has threatened to terminate the appointment of any of its staff, under its health sector, that participates in the ongoing indefinite strike by doctors in the state.
The State’s acting Head of Service, Mrs Kehinde Lawal, made the threat in a circular she signed in Lokoja.
According to her, the state government will also adopt the policy of ‘no work no pay’ for any doctor on strike.
Mrs Lawal further said government was doing its best to make sure that all the salary arrears of cleared officers, by the screening committee, would be paid within the shortest time possible.
The state chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has directed its members to embark on indefinite strike, claiming that the state government failed to pay salaries of its members, among other demands.
