Presidency Orders Striking Resident Doctors Back To Work Or Be Sacked

Federal government has directed the striking resident doctors to return to duty

Labour minister, Senator Chris Ngige, directs that any of the resident doctors who fail to do so by Monday should be fired

The minister, speaking on a television programme, said there are many doctors on stand-by to replace those who refuse to return to wards

Ngige said he will no longer reach out to the leadership of resident doctors, as he is not ready to waste his time again in dialoguing with them

According to Ngige, the leadership of the resident doctors is yet to notify him of the strike as demanded in the labour law

The minister also declared the six day old strike as illegal, because it violates the existing ruling of the national industrial court and the global practices

He blamed the state governments largely for the strike, accusing them of not doing enough in the health sector The resident doctors have rebuffed the threat of sack\
