Demands of Nigerian Doctors you need to know

Must read

On April 29 the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) issued a two-week ultimatum to the Federal Government to meet its demands.

The 14-day notice, however, ended on May 13 without response from the government.

Among others, the association’s unmet demands include:

• 200 per cent review of their Consolidated Medical Salary Structure (CONMESS)

• Payment of the 2023 Medical Residency Training Fund (MRTF)

• Issuance of a circular by the House of Representatives jettisoning the bill by Hon. Ganiyu Johnson, which seeks to stop young doctors from leaving the country without a five-year service period.

• Issuance of a circular by the Federal Ministry of Health for replacement of doctors and nurses that have left the system with new ones, and the payment of salary arrears

• Improvement in hazard allowance by state governments.
