Nigeria’s president remains in the UK for medical treatment

Doctors in Nigeria’s public healthcare facilities are set to start an indefinite strike over bad pay after the federal government stopped working to react to their complaints.

The National Association of Resident Doctors (Nard stated its members would start the strike on Monday at 08:00 regional time.

The union implicated the federal government of “insincerity in implementing” a previous arrangement.

The choice follows a 21-day warning provided to the federal government by the medical employees.

The physicians’ strike is occurring at a time when President Muhammadu Buhari remains in the UK for medical treatment.
