FG Has Not Received Official Communication From NARD

The Federal Government said it has not received any official communication from resident doctors on their minimum demands for an end of their 56-day old strike.

The government however, assured that it would make its position known to the doctors once it received such communication from the striking doctors’ umbrella body.

The conditions the association gave for its members to resume work are the payments of medical residency training fund for 2020 and 2021 and withheld August and September salaries; payment of the salary arrears and allowances of doctors in state tertiary health institutions and the withdrawal of the court case against it.

NARD however explained yesterday that it was ready to negotiate with the Federal Government if it is able to meet the 72-hour ultimatum it gave for the minimum conditions to be met.
