Minister, doctors disagree on strike resolution

Written by on August 3, 2021

The Federal Government and the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) have disagreed on steps being taken to urgently end the indefinite strike commenced yesterday by NARD members.

While the government said yesterday it had started engaging the striking resident doctors, NARD’s President Uyilawa Okhuaihesuyi said the claim was false.

But, the government said while the search for the amicable resolution of the issues in contention continues, medical directors of all federal and state hospitals should ensure that services were not disrupted in their facilities.

Minister of Health Osagie Ehanire made the government’s truce efforts known during the Presidential Steering Committee (PSC) briefing on COVID-19 in Abuja.
