FG begs doctors to resume work immediately

Resident doctors call-off strike, begin work Wednesday

On Friday, a Nigerian Industrial Court in Abuja ordered the striking resident doctors across the country to return to work immediately.

While ruling on an interlocutory injunction filed by Toochukwu Maduka (SAN) on behalf of the Federal Government of Nigeria, Justice Bashar Alkali based his decision on the current health conditions of Nigerians and the need for doctors to resume their duties as essential workers in reducing COVID-19 waves.

Since August 2, 2021, Nigerian resident doctors have been on strike, requesting that the federal government examine the memorandum of understanding and other agreements signed with the body.

But the federal government, through the Ministry of Health, filed an application before the Court on 20th August, 2021, seeking an injunction to restrain the striking doctors from continuing with their industrial actions.
