Residents Doctors To Begin Indefinite Strike From Monday


Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors, NARD, has declared indefinite strike action beginning from Monday, August 2, 2021.

The National President of NARD Dr. Okhuaihesuyi Uyilawa announced this on Saturday in umuahia Abia State at the end of the union’s National Executive Council meeting.

Dr Uyilawa cited the inability of the Federal Government to implement the agreements it entered with the union 113 days after it suspended the previous strike as a reason for the industrial action.

Other reasons for the strike according to the NARD boss include the poor working environment in public hospitals, irregular payment of doctors salaries and hazard allowances of N5000 which was reviewed last in 1991.
