Nigerian Resident Doctors Threaten Fresh Strike

The Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has threatened to embark on an indefinite strike on April 1, if members owed salaries and allowances are not paid.

The decision was contained in a communique issued after the association’s  extraordinary national executive council meeting, which held on Saturday at the National Hospital, Abuja.

According to the communique signed by Uyilawa Okhuaihesuyi, Jerry Isogun, and Dotun Osikoya, president, secretary general, and social secretary, respectively, the association said government has refused to address issues raised in an earlier ultimatum issued in January 2021.

The doctors, who issued a 13-point demand, called for a review of the current salary structure, and the sack of the registrar of the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) “for failure to demonstrate competence in the handling of the central placement of house officers”.
