Unpaid Salaries: Resident Doctors Threaten Nationwide Strike

Resident doctors in Nigeria have given the Federal Government a 21-day ultimatum to address the issues of unpaid salaries of their members or bear the consequence of a nationwide strike.
The President of the National Association of Resident Doctors of Nigeria, Muhammad Askira, gave the warning on Monday in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
Mr Askira decried that their members in Osun, Oyo, Imo and Kogi States were owed salaries ranging from three to eight months.
The group also queried why the situation remained the same despite President Muhammadu Buhari’s pronouncement to care for the welfare of health workers.
The health workers are asking the Federal Government to intervene and find a lasting solution to the issues raised within the 21-day window.
They threatened that if the government failed to attend to their needs, they would embark on a nationwide industrial action by April 25.
