The Association of Resident Doctors, federal capital territory administration (ARD-FCTA) have declared an indefinite strike starting Tuesday, September 1.
This was disclosed through a communiqué signed by Roland Aigbovo and Mustapha Ibrahim, chairman and general secretary of the association.

According to ARD-FCTA, the decision was talked amid the Coronavirus pandemic due to non-implementation of the variation of the 2018 promotion, the non-payment of the COVID-19 hazard and inducement allowances, among other issues.

According to ARD-FCTA, the strike will go on until the issues they highlighted are addressed.

The communiqué read;

“Due to the insensitivity displayed by the Office of the Permanent Secretary, FCT, and widespread agitations among our members in the various FCT hospitals and isolation/treatment centres, we regret to notify the administration and by extension, the general public that the association would embark on an indefinite strike action with effect from 8am, 1st September 2020, until the payment of the COVID-19 hazard and inducement allowance is received and the variation of the 2018 promotion exercise implemented.

“We regret any inconvenience this might cause the Federal Capital Territory Administration and the general public needing healthcare delivery during this period.

“We implore the FCT Administration to also look into the other myriads of problems raised in our earlier communication to the administration dated 14th August 2020, with a view to resolving all pending issues so as to maintain industrial harmony.”
