Striking resident doctors said the FG had declined to pay their salary for the month of August in agreement in accordance with the no-work no-pay policy it recently called on recently.
The National President of the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors, Uyilawa Okhuaihesuyi, confirmed to newsmen on Tuesday.
On the 2nd of August, the resident commenced the strike.
The hard work put in by the government, including approaching the National Industrial Court to make sure they begin work had not produce any result with the striking doctors standing firm that their demand must be met.
“They did not pay, they implemented it (no-work no-pay rule).
“None of our members in federal institutions have received their salaries.
“It is so sad that instead of meeting our demands, the government keeps ignoring the main reason for the strike,” Uyilawa said.
