FG threatens: Doctors who fail to resume work Wednesday will be sacked.

The Federal Government has threatened to sack medical doctors in its payroll who fail to appear at their duty posts on Wednesday. To this end, the government has directed all Chief Medical Directors, CMDs, of its hospitals to open a record-keeping register between 7am and 12 noon each day, beginning from Wednesday, insisting that those who fail to show up for work would be identified and appropriately dealt with.

FG’s threat which came through the Minister for Health, Osagie Ehanire, was a fallout of a meeting convened when Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, took to negotiate with the striking doctors under the aegis of National Association of Resident Doctors, NARD, with a view to resolving the issues that led to declaration of strike, Monday by the latter. The negotiation meeting, which started at about 1 pm on Tuesday and lasted several hours ended in deadlock as association led, by its National President, Dr Aliyu Socumba, angrily stormed out of the meeting. He threatened that the doctors would only suspend the ongoing action within 24 hours if the government brings something tangible on the table.
