The National Association of Resident Doctors of Nigeria (NARD) says it will commence on a nationwide strike after the Federal Government failed to heed to the demands of the medical doctors’ association.
NARD national president, Dr Muhammad Askira stated in Kano today:
“Due to the failure of the government to address the demands of NARD, it has declared a total and indefinite strike.
“NARD has to take this painful decision in order to highlight the plight of our hardworking members who have had to endure a long period of deprivation and disenfranchisement.”
“16 out of 58 federal tertiary institutions or centres were exempted from the initial centre based strike for the commitment of the Chief Medical Director of the hospitals to implement the Federal Government’s directives.’’
