Residents doctors threaten strike

The National Association of Resident Doctors has urged the Federal Government to urgently intervene in the lingering crises in the health sector to avert an impending strike by doctors.

NARD had issued a three-week strike notice that is expected to end on Jan. 2, 2017.

The Public Relations Officer of the association, Dr Ugoeze Asinobi, told NAN in Yenagoa on Monday that the doctors had shelved the planned strike three times in the past four months and were bent on going on strike from January 2.

Resident Doctors are agitating for a uniform template for the Residency Programme, infrastructure for tertiary health facilities, proper grading of doctors and payment of outstanding salaries amongst other issues

Asinobi said, “We don’t want strikes but we are going to have to resort to it again, the residency programme is fundamental to effective health care given the dearth of manpower as the country has less than 20 per cent of required experts.

“Each time the ultimatum expired we shift it in the hope that things will be made right within the time given but it is now obvious the Ministry officials are insincere.

“The issues we go on strike for are always the same issues and we are resolute to withdraw services come January 2 if our concerns are not addressed..

“One wonders if health ministry officials are sabotaging the efforts of President Buhari on purpose as their brazen and blatant disregard to the most basic institutional needs of the major workhorses of the health sector leaves a lot to be desired.

“Their attitude leaves one bewildered as sabotage appears to be the only logical explanation.”

Best Throw Blankets

Why it's incredible: We think the Garnet Hill Plush-Loft Throw is ideal for family life—it's the hottest toss we prescribe and richly delicate, yet it's durable enough for children and pets to thump around. It holds up flawlessly to overwhelming use and various washes. It's unquestionably the most loved of our picks with my 7-year-old and my Maltipoo, and the most diversion for making cover posts. The Plush-Loft has a layer of polyester fill sandwiched between a shell of smooth cotton sateen on one side and polyester rich (like a soft toy) on the other.
