Nigeria Medical Association, Nasarawa State chapter has issued a 21-day ultimatum to the state government over the poor welfare packages of doctors across the 13 local government areas of the state.

In a press briefing today, the Chairman of the NMA in the state, Peter Attah, said the failure of the state government to meet the doctors’ demands within the stipulated time would spur the association to embark on industrial action.

Attah lamented that no fewer than 27 medical doctors had left the state since January 2023 due to the poor condition of service, and urged Governor Abdullahi Sule to hastily address the issues raised by the association in order to tackle brain drain in the health sector.
