FG to implement ‘no work, no pay’ for striking resident doctors

The Federal Government has directed the Chief Medical Directors and Medical Directors in the Federal Tertiary Hospitals to implement the no work, no pay policy on the striking members of the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors.

The FG also directed the hospitals to maintain an attendance register for all resident doctors willing to work.

The letter obtained by journalists on Thursday was written by the Federal Ministry of Health and addressed to the CMDs and MDs of all FTHs in the country.

The letter, dated August 1, 2023, was titled, “Re: Incessant strike action by the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors: Implementation of ‘No Work, No Pay’ policy of the Federal Government,” was signed by the Director of Hospital Services, Dr Andrew Noah.

NARD embarked on an indefinite strike on July 26, 2023, to press home its demands.

The strike followed the expiration of a two-week ultimatum to the government to meet its demands.

The government, in the letter, accused the striking of being insensitive.
