The National assembly has appealed to the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) to suspend the nationwide strike and embrace negotiation with the federal government, stressing that the upper chamber is working to resolve issues.
On Monday, the doctors had embarked on strike over the alleged failure of the federal government to fulfil its part of an agreement raised in a 13-point demand, specifically “irregular payment of salaries” to its members.
Ibrahim Oloriegbe, chairman, senate committee on health made this call at an event organised by the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) on Wednesday in Abuja.
“Any issue with strike is about money and you can say you will pay in arrears but there are no arrears for life, and our primary responsibility as doctors is to save lives,”
“In view of this, whatever are the issues, can always be resolved through dialogue.
“So, I join my colleagues to call on the doctors to go back to work while discussions are ongoing to resolve the issues at stake.” Oloriegbe said.
