The National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) on Monday commenced an indefinite strike in hospitals after an eight hour meeting which ended in the early hours of the morning.
The doctors had last week met with the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige and the Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole where government made some offers to them.
A plea which went unheeded as the association resolved to embark on an indefinite strike until all its demands are met.
Among other demands, the association wants its immediate enrollment on the IPPIS platform without further delay.
Its also asking Government to stop its plan to stagnate the promotion of resident doctors an wants an immediate payment of salary shortfalls experienced between January and May 2017.
