President Muhammadu Buhari has urged the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) to shelve its planned industrial action and give the Federal Government more time to address their grievances.
A statement issued in Abuja on Thursday by the‎ Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu, said Buhari spoke at a meeting with the leadership of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA),
Buhari gave the doctors an assurance that no agreements duly entered into by the Federal Government would be dishonoured by his administration.
The president called for greater understanding and support from doctors and all Nigerians in view of the present shortfall in national revenue brought about by the decline of crude oil prices.
Decrying the adverse impact of the fall in oil prices on the Federal Government’s spending plans for health and other sectors, Buhari said that his administration would continue to do its best to address issues that are of concern to doctors and other Nigerians.
