ABUJA – The National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) is set to go on indefinite nationwide strike from March 31.
In an issued memo signed by NARD president, Dr Uyilawa Okhuaihesuyi and secretary-general, Dr Jerry Isogun, which read: “Recall that at our last ENEC, it was resolved that a two-week timeline for the government to expedite actions on issues brought to it (be given). You would also recall that the January, NEC gave an ultimatum that will elapse on March 31, 2021, for all pending issues to be addressed.
“In the light of the above, we ask that all members should be sensitised and encouraged to prepare to prepare mentally, socially and financially for a strike action that will commence on March 31 indefinitely.”
“We are still being paid N5,000 hazard allowances while National Assembly members take over N1.2m monthly for hardship allowance,”
Okhuaihesuyi said the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment had also failed to attend to their plight and even cancelled an important meeting where pressing issues were supposed to have been discussed.
“On February 26, we were to meet with the ministry of labor only to be told a day earlier that the meeting had been postponed and till today nothing. Enough is enough. They can go ahead to implement no work, no pay. We will make the health sector ungovernable for them,”
