    National Association of Resident Doctors, the umbrella body of all doctors working in government health facilities, has issued a notice of strike effective Monday, June 15, 2020.

    Dr Aliyu Sokomba the National President of NARD, stated this in an official letter with reference number NARD/SG/2019-2020/070620/246.

    The NARD President said the strike would be total regardless of the current pandemic.

    The association however frowned that the action had become necessary due to the failure of the government to fulfill its pledges especially in the areas of salary arrears and working conditions.

    It, however, added that no service of any kind, be it emergency, care at COVID-19 treatment centres shall be exempted and members including all resident doctors, medical officers below the rank of principal medical officer, and house officers are expected to be part of the strike

    The letter read“The strike shall, therefore, be total and indefinite. No service of any kind, be it emergency, care at COVID-19 treatment centres shall be exempted and members including all resident doctors, medical officers below the rank of principal medical officer, and house officers are expected to be part of the strike.”
