Resident Doctors Reject New MOU Offered By Federal Government

Ogun doctors warm up for strike

The resident doctors have rejected the new Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) offered by federal government to end the 21-day old strike, which had crippled services at tertiary hospitals

National president of National Association of Resident Doctors, Doctor Okhuaihesuiyi, gives this indication while addressing a news conference in Abuja

He says that resident doctors will continue with the strike, and proceeds with the case filed against them at the national industrial court

But Okhuaihesuiyi, who was speaking at the end of a meeting convened by federal government with the association, Nigeria Medical Association and other medical unions on Sunday, says the new MOU will presented to members before it will be signed

He explained that leadership of resident doctors refused to sign the new MOU during the meeting, because of certain clauses in the document

According to him, the striking resident doctors are being punished for the failure of some government officials

Labour minister, Senator Chris Ngige, however, says that other medical unions, including Nigeria Medical Association had signed the new MOU Ngige says that federal government will start implementing the new MOU as from Monday
