DAILY POST recalls that Dr Asema Msuega, serving in Sankera General Hospital in Ukum LGA, was abducted in July and has been in captivity since then.

The doctors noted that the difficult decision to embark on indefinite strike action effective 8am, Friday, 25th August 2023, was taken after all efforts seeking the release of their colleague from captivity proved abortive .

The NMA said in the communique” that there will be a massive protest of doctors on Tuesday 29 th August 2023, at the Government House Roundabout to terminate at the government house.

“These decisions have not been taken lightly but in painful consideration of the protracted and unresolved abduction of our colleague, Dr. Asema Msuega who has been in captivity for over one month since Sunday 23rd July 2023.

”We understand the profound impact this strike action may have on the delivery of healthcare services and have yet again exempted the private hospitals and clinics, hence, they will remain open to the public at this initial stage.

”Our demands are clear; the unconditional and immediate release of Dr. Asema Msuega. Until this demand is met, we are left with no choice but to activate these measures as we continue to seek help and intervention “.

NMA also called on the Governor of Benue State, Rev Fr Hyacinth Alia, stakeholders and other well meaning individuals in the state to wade into the matter to secure the release of the young medical doctor.

”The NMA Benue State Branch reiterates its determination to continue pressing until our demand is met even as we thank our members and the public for their overwhelming support and understanding during this trying time.”
