President Buhari appeals to doctors to shelve strike


President Buhari has appealed the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) to shelve its threatened strike action and give the Federal Government more time to address the grievances of doctors.



According to a statement issued in Abuja on Thursday by the‎ Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said Buhari made the appeal at a meeting with the leadership of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) in Abuja today April 7th.

Buhari gave the doctors an assurance that no agreement duly entered into by the Federal Government would be dishonoured by his administration. He called for greater understanding and support from doctors and all Nigerians in view of the present shortfall in national revenue brought about by the decline of crude oil prices.
