Court Ruling To Break Doctors’ Strike Won’t Affect Implementation Of Agreement, Says Ngige

The minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has described “as a welcome development”, the court ruling at the National Industrial Court (NIC), compelling the residents’ doctors to end their 3-week-old strike and resume their duty immediately.

Ngige also said the ruling would not prevent the federal government from implementing all agreements reached with the affected doctors as contained in the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) during the last meeting with the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) and affiliate associations


According to him in a statement by the spokesman of the ministry, Charles Akpan, the Federal Ministry of Health, Federal Ministry of Finance, Budget Office of the Federation (BOF), Office of the Head of Service of the Federation (OHOCSF) and the National Salaries, Incomes and Wages and Commission (NSIWC) have kick-started the implementation with timelines affixed to them.
