He described the 11 weeks industrial action and the losses suffered during the period as unfortunate.

Adeneye said: “The decision to suspend the strike followed intervention by government, spirited individuals and the consideration of those that might not be able to access medical care in other health institutions.

“The association, on compassionate ground, agreed to allow industrial harmony by suspending the strike because of new commitment and agreement by the management of UUTH, the association and other stakeholders.
