Resident Doctors Meet FG Amid Looming Nationwide Protest

The Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has met with the federal government Tuesday amid the ongoing strike action and looming nationwide protest.
The NARD President, Emeka Orji, while speaking to newsmen on Tuesday, said the outcome of the meeting would determine if the doctors would embark on the planned protest.
Recall that the association had embarked on an indefinite strike on July 26 over the failure of the government to implement the demands of members.

Some of the demands of the resident doctors include payment of the 2023 medical residency training fund (MRTF); immediate release of the circular on one-for-one replacement and upward review of the consolidated medical salary structure (CONMESS).
Others are payment of outstanding arrears of consequential adjustment, hazard and skipping allowance.
The NARD had announced that its members will embark on peaceful nationwide protests from Wednesday, August 9.
