JUST IN: Resident doctors to embark on strike

The National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has given the Federal Government two weeks to implement agreements concerning their demands or face industrial disharmony.

In a communique issued on Saturday, the resident doctors made this known at the end of their Extraordinary National Executive Council meeting held in Abeokuta, Ogun state.

The meeting which held from Thursday, April 27 to Saturday was predicated upon burning issues affecting the welfare of the doctors and the alarming rate of flight of doctors and other healthcare workers on account of poor remuneration, grossly inadequate funding of the health sector, and the attendant negative effect on the citizens and the health workers.
