NIGERIAN DOCTORS BEGIN NATIONWIDE STRIKE
Written by wave FM on April 1, 2021
Members of the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors, NARD, have commenced a nationwide strike despite the Federal Government’s efforts to stop the action.
NARD gave the explanation on Thursday in a message posted on the association’s Twitter account.
Recall that NARD had said that it would embark on an indefinite strike beginning from April 1 if the Federal Government failed to meet its demands.
The doctors listed their grievances to include the non-payment of salaries of between three to five months to some house officers and the non-recruitment of house officers.
