The Federal Government and the National Association of Resident Doctors will on Friday (today) hold a meeting to address the ongoing strike embarked upon by the aggrieved doctors.
Spokesman of the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Charles Akpan, disclosed this in an invite to journalists on Thursday.
He said the parley which would hold at the ministry, will be chaired by the Minister for Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, and attended by resident doctors and representatives of the Federal Government.
The medical workers had expressed lack of confidence in the Memorandum of Action signed with the government representatives, despite claims by the minister that FG had not only substantially met the seven-point demand by NARD, “it has also demonstrated transparency in their implementation.”
They also accused government of trying to hoodwink the union with an MOA that won’t be acted upon.
