It will be recalled that the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has been on strike since August 2, 2021, and negotiations between them and the government has so far failed to yield positive results.
The minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige in a recent submission on Tuesday, said only those that are illegally recruited have not gotten paid because they have no record with the federal government.
He further accused the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) of not telling members of the public the whole truth about government activities in the health sector but painting themselves as saints to justify their strike action.
