The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has urged the Federal Government to resolve the industrial dispute with the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors, NARD.

NMA urged the Federal Government to quickly conclude measures to resolve all areas of disagreement and eschew all punitive responses in the interest of industrial harmony.

The President of NMA, Uche Ojinmah, also urged NARD to extend a gesture of goodwill towards the government in the interest of sick patients.

A statement by Ojinmah reads: “NMA as the umbrella body for all doctors in Nigeria, is the mother association to the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) and hence, as a matter of policy, must protect/promote her interests.

“It is our belief that this avoidable labour dispute has gone on for far too long to the detriment of the common Nigerian citizen.

“We hereby call on our Government to quickly conclude measures to resolve all areas of disagreement and eschew all punitive responses in the interest of industrial harmony.

“NMA also calls on NARD to extend a gesture of goodwill towards the Government in the interest of our suffering patients and fellow citizens.

“Let’s put aside all obstacles (contrived or real) towards speedy resolution of this dispute for the love of the nation.”
