The Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has vowed to continue its nationwide strike which has crippled healthcare in hospitals across the country.
At its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting on Wednesday, the association said there was no going back on its resolve to down tools until all its demands are met.
The doctors also accused the federal government of being insincere in its response to their grievances.
“The NEC unanimously voted that the ongoing total and indefinite strike that started on the 1st of April 2021 be continued until the federal and state governments of Nigeria meet up with our demands,” NARD said in a statement.
The resident doctors went on strike on April 1 over issues which mostly border on poor remuneration and conditions of service.
