The Nigerian medical Association (NMA) and the Narional Associaltion of Resident Doctors (NARD) have blamed minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, for the prolonged strike by resident doctors.
The NMA’s General Secretary, Philips Ekpe; and the Vice President of NARD, Arome Adejo, made the position of their groups known in separate interviews with The PUNCH in Abuja. Arome told Punch that Ngige should be sacked for not telling the truth about the state of things.
He said, “NARD as a body calls for the sacking of Ngige for he is the major factor aggravating things; he is also coming out to tell lies about doctors and constantly aggravating the already tensed situation.”
