The national association of resident doctors, nard, has labelled the circular issued by the federal ministry of health to implement the ‘no work no pay’ policy on their striking members as unfortunate.


Recall that federal government had directed hospitals to maintain an attendance register for all resident doctors, and for chief medical directors and medical directors of federal tertiary hospitals to implement the no work, no pay policy on the striking members of the national association of resident doctors, nard.


Reacting, president of NARD, Emeka Orji, described the action of the ministry as unfortunate and warned that doctors should not be blamed for their next line of action.


The doctors last week embarked on an indefinite strike over government’s failure to meet its demands which includes, implementation of the one-for-one replacement policy for healthcare workers; discontinuation of the downgrading of the membership certificate issued by the west African postgraduate medical and surgical colleges as well as payment of salary arrears and other allowances.
