RESIDENT DOCTORS BEGIN INDEFINITE NATIONWIDE STRIKE

The National Association of Resident Doctors of Nigeria has commenced a nationwide strike after the expiration of a 14-day ultimatum.

NARD President, Dr Aliyu Sokomba, announced this while addressing a press conference this morning in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.

He stated that the union has decided to exempt its members working in various corona virus (COVID-19) isolation and treatment centres across the country.

Dr Sokomba, however, stated that exemption of the members attending to COVID-19 patients was for two weeks before they join the industrial action.
