Don’t threaten me with strike, I won’t pay you when you resume – Minister of FCT, Nyesom Wike warns Abuja doctors (video)

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, has warned resident doctors in Abuja against threatening to embark on strike. Wike said he would not pay FCT medical doctors who embark on strike, and if they force the issue, he would take them to court.He also told the resident doctors that he would save more money when they embark on industrial action.Make your recommendations, and we will see the ones we can do and those we cant do. Dont threaten me with a strike because I dont like it. When you go on strike, I save money; even if you come back, I wont pay; we will determine it in court. Its not about promises but the reality on ground, I dont believe in theory, Wike said. In recent times, the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors, NARD, have been on-and-off industrial actions due to the Federal Governments failure to meet its demands.The doctors demands among many others include the immediate payment of the 2023 Medical Residency Training Fund (MRTF), tangible steps on the upward review of the Consolidated Medical Salary Structure (CONMESS), and payment of all salary arrears owed its members since 2015.The doctors also want the immediate massive recruitment of clinical staff in the hospitals and the abolishment of the bureaucratic limitations to the immediate replacement of doctors and nurses who have stopped working or traveled abroad.      View this post on Instagram           A post shared by Lindaikejiblog (@lindaikejiblogofficial)  The post Dont threaten me with strike, I wont pay you when you resume Minister of FCT, Nyesom Wike warns Abuja doctors (video) appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
