Strike: FG Insists On No Pay For Striking Resident Doctors

Nigerian resident doctors suspend nationwide strike

Federal government has vowed not to pay resident doctors who are on strike unless they suspend their strike and resume duties in their respective hospitals

Labour minister, Senator Chris Ngige, who issues the threat also says that the case filed against them at the National Industrial Court will not be withdrawn until they suspend the 34 day old strike

Ngige addressing the state house correspondents after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, says the president has approved the conditions

The minister claims that federal government has reached an agreement on all the 12 point demands of the striking resident doctors

The only exception, according to Ngige is the ‘no work, no pay’ policy which he vows that will not be bent for the resident doctors, because it is a global policy

The minister explains that he expects the union of the resident doctors to have set aside the strike fund to pay their members while on strike

He recalls that federal government is still holding the two to three months salaries of health workers who went on a three month strike in 2018
