Doctors ignores ‘No Work No Pay’ threat as states set to stop striking Doctors salaries
Written by crest887fm on September 4, 2021
Striking resident doctors have called the Federal Government’s bluff for invoking the no-work-no-pay policy by stopping their salaries.
However, there were indications that states across the country might also adopt the Federal Government policy by equally denying the protesting doctors their salaries.
But the doctors said rather than being intimidated by the Federal Government’s action and indications that states might also join in the action, the development had further strengthened their resolve to persist until their demands were met.
The resident doctors made this known while speaking with newsmen on Friday.
The Vice President of the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors, Adejo Arome vowed that rather than ending the strike, government’s decision to implement the no-work-no-pay policy had further ignited the fight for freedom among resident doctors.
Arome also alleged that the striking doctors were aware that the government did not care about their welfare, adding that the action of the government had made the doctors more united.
