Abuja doctors begin strike as FG announces new Coronavirus case

The Abuja Chapter of the Association of Resident Doctors on Tuesday began an indefinite strike in the midst of the announcement of a new Coronavirus case in Lagos.

According to a statement signed by its president, Roland Aigbovo, the doctors said the decision was taken after deliberation on the threat of Coronavirus, working conditions in hospitals and care of patients.

The striking doctors, who described the decision as a difficult one to take, said the failure of the FCT administration to pay their basic salaries for more than two months contributed in part to the decision.

The ARD president stated that the association had earlier issued warnings and ultimatums to alert authority to the non-payment of their salaries, adding that the authorities ignored the warnings.

According to him, there had been irregularities in salary payment and shortfalls since the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System was introduced by the Federal Captial Territory Authority.
