Resident Doctors Strike Continues After 13-hour Meeting with FG

The industrial action embarked on by members of the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) will not be called off today.

This was coming after a 13-hour meeting held with the federal government’s negotiation team containing the Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige; the Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole; and the Minister of State for Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire.

According to a statement issued by the Ministry of Labour, the strike action would continue pending resolution of NARD members on the re-negotiated Memorandum of Terms of Settlement.

”The meeting agreed that NARD national officers will present the outcome of the re-negotiated Memorandum of Terms of settlement to an emergency meeting of its members by Friday September 8, 2017 with a view to suspending the strike once there is evidence of payment of the mandate as presented to the meeting, to the affected institutions,” the statement read.
