The National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) have given the federal government notice of industrial action.
The Punch reported that, NARD gave the government two weeks to resolve all pending issues in the health sector or face a medical doctors strike at the end of the September.
Dr John Onyebueze, the president of the association, said this when he was speaking with journalists at the end of NARD’s 26th Annual General Meeting in Enugu.
He mentioned the issues like unpaid salaries, upgrading the infrastructure in teaching hospitals, the immediate release and implementation of the report on the residency training programme,
actions against poliomyelitis and Lassa fever. This can bridge the harmony in the health sector if nothing is done to bring change in the situation by the end of September, 2016.
