In spite coronavirus, Abuja doctors begin indefinite strike


Medical doctors in Abuja under the umbrella of Association of Resident Doctors (ARD) have embarked on an indefinite strike despite the raging coronavirus pandemic.

Rising from an emergency meeting on Tuesday, the doctors released a statement signed by its president, Roland Aigbovo, in which they said they deliberated extensively on the health threat posed by the coronavirus scare, their work conditions, and patient care before arriving at the “difficult decision to go on an indefinite strike.

The aggrieved doctors stated that the decision to embark on the strike at this time is due to the failure of the FCT administration to pay them their basic salaries for more than two months.

According to Aigbovo, there has been salary irregularities and shortfalls since the migration to the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System by the FCTA.
