Doctors StrikeThe Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Nwabueze Ngige, has appealed to the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) to call off their warning strike and resume duty in the interest of the nation.
Recall that the NARD began a 5-day warning strike that began on Wednesday over issue regarding payment of salaries and working conditions.
A statement yesterday by the Deputy Director (Press) in the ministry, Samuel Olowookere, said Ngige, also a medical doctor, advised them to utilize the mechanisms of the ongoing social dialogue with government on the issues of concern to its members.
The minister urged the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) being the parent body of NARD to join in the appeal, drawing the attention of the striking resident doctors to the essential nature of their duties to humanity.
