NMA hold protest against doctors' sack
The Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) under the auspices of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has embarked on peaceful protest at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital to demand the reversal of Federal Government sack of 16,000 resident doctors across the country.
The association is also asking the government to lift the ban on doctors' residency training.
Lagos State NMA chairman, Dr Tope Ojo said the only way forward is for Mr President to “unconditional” reverse the sacking of the doctors.
He said this is step is important for NMA to continue to dialogue with the government, adding that doctors should not be threatened with sack.
