The National Association of Resident Doctors has declared a “total and indefinite strike action”. The association revealed this in a terse statement made available to newsmen on Tuesday evening.
The resident doctors listed their demands to include the immediate payment of the 2023 MRTF, the immediate release of the circular on one-for-one replacement, and the payment of skipping arrears.
Other demands are the payment of MRTF, new hazard allowance, skipping and implementation of corrected CONMESS in State Tertiary Health Institutions, and the payment of omitted hazard allowance arrears.
You will recall that. the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Tajudeen Abbas, who held deliberations with the leadership of NARD behind closed doors, promised to meet with President Bola Tinubu to avert the industrial action of the resident doctors and announced the setup of an ad hoc committee to meet with all the stakeholders and address the matter.
