Medical Doctors on Strike

The Kaduna State chapter of Association of Resident Doctors (ARD) has suspended the indefinite strike it embarked upon on October 2, 2017.

Daily Trust reports that the suspension is coming on the back of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by the state government to commence implementation of their demands by 2018.

It was gathered that some of the demands of the association include provision of adequate funding, equipping and staffing of hospitals, so as to create a conducive working and living environment for the medical and other health workers as well as patients.

According to the President of the Association, Dr. Joseph Natsah, the doctors have resolved to suspend the strike while waiting for the government to fulfill its own part of the agreement.

Natsah further directed all his members to resume work with immediate effects.

The doctors had embarked on an indefinite strike action over issues bothering on their welfare and quality of health care delivery in the state.
