FG, Resident Doctors Reach New Agreements


(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Federal Government on Saturday morning agreed to pay N4.8bn Residency Training Fund to the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) in the next seven days.

The government also agreed to clear the arrears of the consequential adjustment of the National Minimum Wage from April when the bill was signed by President Muhammadu Buhari to December 2019.

The government, through the Federal Ministry of Health, also said it has forwarded a list from 38 hospitals to the Budget office for inclusion in the Service Wide Vote.

The agreement may have laid the foundation for the peaceful resolution of the ongoing strike by NARD which commenced on August 1, 2021.



A Memorandum of Action is expected to be signed by all parties involved in the discussion today (Saturday).

The truce was brokered following the intervention of the leadership of the Nigerian Medical Association led by Prof Innocent Uja.
