NMA gives Buhari government a 21-day ultimatum to resolve issues with NARD. The Nigerian Medical body warned the government to resolve its issues with the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria, MDCAN, the National Association of Resident Doctors, NARD, and the Medical and Dental Specialist Association in Basic Medical Sciences, MEDSABAMS.
The Nigerian Medical Association has given the federal government a 21 days notice to fully resolve all the issues contained in the various agreements signed with its affiliate members.
The warning followed a National Executive Council meeting of the association in Edo State to discuss the current impasse between the government and resident doctors.
The NMA said it exhaustively reviewed the various industrial disputes involving the different affiliates of the Association maintaining that no doctor will be victimized for participating or not participating in the strike action by NARD.
A statement by the NMA President, Prof Innocent Ujah, said the Nigerian Medical Association fully supports all her affiliates in their efforts to improve the Healthcare Delivery in Nigeria and the welfare of her members.
”In the event that the FG fails to implement the agreements after the expiration of the 21- days notice, NMA shall summon an emergency delegate meeting to review the progress made on the implementation of the agreements.
