The situation, they said, will be further reviewed in the next 72 hours during the Ordinary General Meeting of the NMA Abia State on June 19.

Ugwuanyi (Secretary) and Dr Erondu Nnamdi (Publicity Secretary), however, warned that they may be forced to resume the suspended strike action “if no further palpable progress is made in the next 72 hours.”
