The Nigerian Medical Association, Gombe State branch has called on members of the Joint Health Sector Union to suspend its strike and attend to victims of recent bomb blasts in the state.
Chairman of NMA in Gombe State, Doctor Adamu Danladi made the call while speaking with newsmen in Gombe.
He said doctors in the state have been making frantic efforts to attend to victims, but that the work is overwhelming as they are performing the jobs of almost every health worker.
According to him, members of the union have been working overnight, performing surgeries on the victims and other patients at the Specialists Hospital, Gombe.
Doctor Danladi refuted a report in one of the National Dailies to the effect that victims of the blasts were not being treated at the hospital because doctors are on strike.
