Nigerian Doctors proceed on Indefinite Strike..



As has been expected in recent days, Nigerian Resident doctors have proceeded on an indefinite strike across the length and breadth of the Nation.
The doctors resolved to proceed on the strike after a meeting of its national leadership that ended in the early hours of Monday.
This was disclosed in a statement by the President of the National Association of Resident Doctors, NARD, Onyebueze John, which read..
“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.”
Nigerian news mediums had reported over the weekend that the Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige had stated that the planned strike action was suspended.
The doctors had then denied the claim, saying that while they met with the government, they were yet to take a decision.
The strike action is expected to adversely affect health care in public secondary and tertiary hospitals in the country, particularly teaching hospitals.
