FG Orders Indefinite Suspension Of Resident Doctors In Teaching Hospitals

share on:

Resident Doctors in Nigerian Teaching Hospitals have been suspended by the Federal Government starting August 13th. According to a letter sent out by the Permanent secretary of the Federal Ministry of Health, the indefinite suspension is meant to help the Federal Govt ‘appraise the challenges facing the health sector’.

The doctors under the auspices of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) had embarked on a strike to press home their demand for an improvement in their welfare on July 1 and attempts to solve the issue has proved futile.

The government had earlier accused the doctors of neglecting their oath to protect lives and continue to turn down the request to suspend the strike, particularly during the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus and the ongoing insurgency in some parts of the country.
