Total calamity: Resident doctors commence indefinite strike
Resident Doctors on Monday morning announced the commencement of an indefinite industrial action.
The decision to embark on the strike was disclosed by the National Association of Resident Doctors, NARD, President, Dr. Onyebueze John in Abuja.
In a one-paragraph statement, the Doctors rejected offers from the Federal Government after their meeting.
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige and the Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole had met with representatives of NARD last week and some offers were made.
Disclosing that the offer from government was rejected, John said, “Rising from our NEC meeting, which started by 7pm yesterday and ended 3am today. NARD has resolved to reject the promissory offer from Government, and proceed on total and indefinite strike action until all items in her demand list for strike action are resolved by Government.”
