The National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has commenced a nationwide indefinite strike today.
The NARD president, Aliyu Sokomba, confirmed this development to newsmen.
Sokomba stated that the doctors concluded to embark on strike due to the failure of the government to meet their requests made in June this year.
The doctors had in June downed tools over unpaid salaries, non-payment of hazard allowance, and shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in hospitals amid COVID-19, among several other reasons.
“These demands are yet to be fulfilled,” Mr Sokomba said.
