Doctors Begin 5-day Warning Strike Today. National Association of Resident Doctors has declared five days of warning strike starting today, 11 May to protest what it called “remuneration injustice.”

NARD president Dr Muhammad Askira said at a press briefing in Abuja that its negotiations with government representatives were not satisfactory after President Muhammadu Buhari’s assurance that their demands would be met.

“There are some processes still ongoing in resolving the impasse.

Efforts so far made by government has not yet met our demands with respect to doctors’ pay and residency training,” he said.

Their grievances include non payment of December salaries of doctors at Federal hospitals including UBTH, UCH and LUTH and non implementation of new entry steps for house officers.

The strike is bound to compound healthcare services considering the already weakened health system in the country. Also, patients in public hospitals would have to resort to patronising private hospitals were the cost is exorbitant and mostly out of reach for low income earners.
