Just In: Federal Government to meet with Doctors on Friday

Estimated Reading Time: 1

The Federal Government and the National Association of Resident Doctors will meet on Friday to address the ongoing strike embarked upon by the doctors last week.

The Ministry of Labour and Employment spokesman, Charles Akpan, disclosed this in an invitation sent to journalists on Thursday.

He said the parley which would hold at the ministry, will be chaired by the Minister for Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige and attended by resident doctors and representatives of the Federal Government.

The agreement between the FG and doctors broke down after the medical workers expressed lack of confidence in the Memorandum of Action signed with the government representatives.

The NARD had after its Executive Council meeting accused the government of insincerity and dismissed the MOA as a plot by the government to deceive the union.
