Resident Doctors under the umbrella of the National Association of Resident Doctors, NARD have embarked on nationwide strike.

This was contained in a statement released by NARD in Abuja this morning.

The statement said that the NEC of NARD had resolved to commence the indefinite strike, rising from its meeting early this morning.

It said that it had rejected the promissory of the Federal Government and had to take to industrial action because the meeting it had with the Minister of Health, Professor Isaac Adewole and his counterpart for Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige did not show any sign of hope.
