Doctors under the aegis of the National Association of Resident Doctors, NARD, on Monday, embarked upon a nationwide indefinite strike.
The NARD president, Aliyu Sokomba, confirmed this development to Premium Times over the phone.
He said the doctors decided to embark on strike due to the failure of the government to meet their requests made in June this year.
The doctors had in June downed tools over unpaid salaries, non-payment of hazard allowance, and a dearth of Personal Protective Equipment, PPE, in hospitals, among several other reasons.
“These demands are yet to be fulfilled,” Mr Sokomba said.
