NARD commenced the strike on Monday over unpaid salaries in both Federal and State Tertiary Health Institutions across the country, non-inclusion of Resident Doctors in the Federal Government’s integrated salary pay structure, lack of funding for residency training, and non-enrollment of their members on pension arrangement.

 

Dr Fakorede urged the Government and Stakeholders to address the challenges facing the Health Sector of the nation, especially those facing Resident Doctors.
