Abuja doctors may suspend strike as Reps intervene


Health workers in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) may be calling off the industrial action they embarked on by Thursday, 19 March 2020. This followed a successful intervention of the House of Representatives after a meeting with representatives of the striking health workers and the management of the FCT on Tuesday.

Speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila, who had mandated the Rep. Tanko Sununu-led Committee on Health Services to intervene and ensure that the matters are resolved, pleaded with the health workers to consider the effect of the industrial action on the larger society, especially at this period of global health challenges.

At the meeting with the Committee were members of the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD), Medical and Dental Consultants Association of Nigeria (MDCAN) as well as Nurses and Midwives Association, while the Director, Human Resources, FCT, Muhammad Bashir, who led other management staff to the meeting, stood in for the Permanent Secretary.
