Members of the National Association of
Resident Doctors (NARD ) have embarked
on an indefinite nationwide strike.
The association president Dr Aliyu
Sokomba announced this while
addressing a press conference on Monday
in Abuja .
Sokomba said that the union exempted
its members working in various
coronavirus (COVID - 19) isolation and
treatment centres across the country
from participating in the strike.
But he said that exemption of the
members attending to COVID - 19 patients
was for two weeks before they join the
industrial action .
He explained that the union took the
decision to go on strike as a result of the
failed series of meetings between the
doctors and the Federal Government in
the last two weeks .
According to the NARD president , the
meetings have failed to resolve the
lingering industrial disputes which
include the non- payment of special
allowances for the resident doctors .
He also decried the deplorable state of
hospitals and the lack of protective
equipment for members of the union
treating COVID - 19 patients .
Sokomba added that this has exposed
many of their colleagues to coronavirus
and resulted in the death of some of
them .
