Medical and Dental Consultants Association of Nigeria Condemns Call for Debate over Doctor's Strike

On 16/Jul/2014 / In Medical News

The Medical and Dental Consultants Association of Nigeria has described rthe call for a five hour debate between the fedral government and the nigerian medical association NMA by the minister of health, onyebuchi chukwu, as a clear demonstration of frustration. 
This is in reaction to the recent call by the health minister for a five hour debate between the FG and the NMA before the nigerian public on the issues in contention in the ongoing strike by the NMA.
The MDCAN President, steve oluwale, who gave the condemnation while responding to questions from journalists in abuja yesterday advocated the involvement of external medicator s to facilitate the early resolution of the differences between the FG and the NMA.
He said: this is a novel proposal by the minister of health. It is of little use second guessing while this unusual method of solving industrial dispute was proposed or contemplated .
The gallery of the public is unlikely to be sufficiently informed and grounded on the issues to play unbiased umpire between the minister oand the NMA debater-in-chief
the theatre of debate may however, not do either party much good.
