Nigeria Health Minister describes doctors’ strike as illegal, hasty

The Minister of Health, Onyebuchi Chukwu, has described the ongoing strike by members of the National Association of Resident Doctors, NARD, as illegal and unwarranted. Speaking in Abuja, Monday, he said the doctors’ action was unnecessary as the ministry and the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) were already handling the same issues for which they commenced the strike.

The NMA is the mother body to other medical professional subgroups of which NARD is a member. According to Mr. Chukwu, not only was the ministry “handling issues” with NMA, the NARD was also part of the meeting.
