The Nigerian National Association of Resident Doctors last Monday embarked on a nationwide industrial action over unpaid salaries, dearth of benefits to families of members that lost their lives to COVID-19 pandemic and hazard allowances, clamour for improved conditions, and the failure to domesticate Medical Residency Training (MRT) Act 2017 in states, among others.

It must be noted that about four months ago, the NARD were also on strike over these same issues and the strike was called off following a memorandum of understanding signed by the Federal Government and the leadership of NARD.

President, NARD, Dr. Uyilawa Okhuaihesuyi stated that “There is no going back on plans to shut down public and government hospitals due to inability of the Federal Government to keep to its promise to the doctors in meeting their demands.
