The Nigeria Association of Resident Doctors has said its nationwide strike scheduled to commence today (Monday ) will go ahead because the Federal Government has yet to invite its leadership for a meeting.
NARD said the Nigerian Medical Association , Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria, National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives and others should support the struggle for upward review of its hazard allowance from the paltry sum of N5 ,000 .
The National Publicity Secretary , Dr Stanley Egbogu, told newsmen on Sunday that the government had not invited NARD for a meeting despite notifying them .
He said , “ The Federal Government has not invited us to a meeting after we notified them that we will be proceeding on strike . We have directed all our members across the country both federal and state institutions to recommence the strike we suspended on June 22 , 2020 .
