Oh No! UCH Resident Doctor Embark On StrikeBy cheatmaster 12:00 Sun, 02 May 2021 Comments
Dr Temitope Hussein, who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on Saturday in Ibadan, said the strike was to protest non-payment of January, February, March and April salaries of some members of the association.
Hussein said other issues also included the non-enrolment of some members into the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, (IPPIS), which was affecting payment of their emoluments.
The national body of the association, the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD), had in April suspended its indefinite strike after ten days.
NARD had cited “new agreement reached with the Federal Government” as the reason for suspending the strike.
The doctors had demanded, amongst other things, payment of all salary arrears and review of the current hazard allowance to 50 per cent of consolidated basic salaries for all health workers.
