The association disclosed this in statement made available to PUNCH Online by its Chairman, Ishaku Yahaya, on Monday.

The union said it decided to suspend the strike following a level of seriousness and commitment made by the government through the office of the Secretary to the State Government, Head of Service and the Commissioner for Health which resulted in the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding.

“We resolved to suspend the five-day warning strike to give room for more negotiations and await the government to fulfill its side of the MoU,” the statement added.
