Resident Doctors' Strike - Govt Fumes, Accuses Doctors of Violating Agreement

Resident Doctors' Strike - Govt Fumes, Accuses Doctors of Violating Agreement”

The National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD ) yesterday commenced indefinite industrial action over unpaid remuneration and unsettled demands.

The doctors later refuted the statement, saying though they met with the government, but were yet to take a decision.

Three weeks into the ASUU strike and there seems to be no headway with negotiations as the merry-go-round of who heads the federal government delegation continues.

The demands of the doctors included payment of salary arrears, upgrade of members of their body who have met promotion criteria, alleged poor working conditions, and increased funding for the health sector. The health and well-being of Nigerians are cardinal to President Buhari administration.

He said: "The President of the Resident Doctors Association, Dr. Onyebueze, expressed satisfaction at the outcome of the meeting". Like we said, these issues have been lingering since 2013 but we have a new hope and we feel we have seen the green light at the end of the tunnel.

Adewole gave the assurance of the Federal Government's commitment to addressing all the issues in contention, but needed time.

"Consequently, the meeting between NARD and government earlier scheduled for November 2, 2017, is now convened for Wednesday, September 6 by 12 noon at the Conference Room of the Honourable Minister of Labour and Employment".

It was earlier reported that the doctors had suspended its plan to embark on the nationwide strike slated to begin today, September 4, 2017.
