FG Respond to Resident Doctors on Strike

The Federal Government on Monday in Abuja stated that the strike declared by the National Association of Resident Doctors was illegal and unwarranted.
The Minister of Health, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu, said this during the opening ceremony of a retreat organised for chairmen of boards of management, governing boards, governing councils, chief executive officers and Directors of Administration of tertiary hospitals and parastatals.
Chukwu said, “The strike by Resident Doctors was uncalled for because we were already handling the issues after our meeting with the Nigerian Medical Association. I still remember that the NMA gave us an ultimatum to look at certain issues and we had very long meeting with the NMA and indeed the NARD participated in that meeting.
“There is a committee being chaired by Head of Civil Service of the Federation in which the NMA, including the NARD are well represented. These are the same matters being handled. So, there are persons already in a committee handling those issues and they should have exercised some patience.”
