COVID-19: Resident doctors embark on indefinite strike in Abuja

The Association of Resident Doctors, Federal Capital Territory Administration, ARD-FCTA, have declared an indefinite strike commencing on Tuesday, September 1.

The group in a statement signed by Roland Aigbovo and Mustapha Ibrahim, chairman and general secretary of the association, said the decision was taken due to non-implementation of the variation of the 2018 promotion, the non-payment of COVID-19 hazard and inducement allowances, among other issues.

According to the association, the strike will go on until the issues they highlighted are addressed.

“Due to the insensitivity displayed by the Office of the Permanent Secretary, FCT, and widespread agitations among our members in the various FCT hospitals, isolation, and treatment centers, we regret to notify the administration and the general public that the association would embark on an indefinite strike action with effect from 8 am, 1st September, 2020.
