Abia State branch of the Nigerian Medical Association, NMA, has regretted the inability of the state government to honor the 21-day ultimatum given to the State Government to pay the State University Teaching Hospital their salary arrears.

A communiqué issued at the End of an Emergency General Meeting, jointly signed by the Chairman Abali Isaiah, and the Secretary, Daniel Ekeleme, noted that doctors working at ABSUTH and HMB are currently owed between 21 and 25 months and 13 months of salary arrears respectively.

The communiqué condemned in strongest terms the non-payment of the Doctors adding, that the Ultimatum still stands.

It, however, insisted on the payment of what is owed to Doctors as a condition to avert the impending strike.
