The National Association of Resident Doctors NARD has embarked on a total and indefinite strike action. The association revealed this in a statement made available to journalists yesterday. The resident doctors listed their demands to include the immediate payment of the 2023 MRTF, the immediate release of the circular on one-for-one replacement, and the payment of skipping arrears.
The list also noted the upward review of CONMESS in line with full salary restoration to the 2014 value of CONMESS, the payment of the arrears of consequential adjustment of minimum to the omitted doctors, and the reversal of the downgrading of the membership certificate by MDCN among other demands.
The strike comes after the association on July 5 issued a two-week ultimatum to the Federal Government for the implementation of all its demands.
