Foremost human rights lawyers and activists, Femi Falana and Femi Aborisade, will be leading the legal team for the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors in their ongoing negotiations with the Federal Government.

The President of NARD, Dr. Uyilawa Okhuaihesuyi, disclosed this to PUNCH HealthWise on Monday.

Okhuaihesuyi noted that Falana is interested in helping the health workers to fight brain drain in the country.

“They are leading the legal team and they have been open with us.

“We are being oppressed by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige; and the Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, who are misinterpreting the court judgment.

“They say we’ve been ordered to call off the strike; but if you remember, Mr. Falana had said that was not what the court judgment says.

“Apart from that, Falana-led Alliance on Surviving COVID-19 and Beyond; and convener, Citizens Solidarity Health Sector Forums, are trying to help all the health workers in Nigeria to fight brain drain and he is interested in helping us,” Okhuaihesuyi said.

The National Industrial Court in Abuja had fixed September 15 to hear an application brought by the Federal Government against the striking resident doctors.

When the matter came up by way of originating summons, the vacation judge, Justice John Targema, said that the claimant’s application would be taken.

He, however, directed the defendant to appear on the next adjourned date to show cause why the “no work, no pay” rule should not be enforced against it

Targema thereafter adjourned until September 15 for hearing of the application from both parties.

Resident doctors embarked on an indefinite strike on August 2, to press home their demands.

Some of the issues raised by NARD include the inconsistent payment of salaries, hazard allowances, non-payment of death benefits, and issues surrounding the registration of members on the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System.

The strike was also to demand the immediate withdrawal of the circular removing House Officers from the scheme of service and the hasty implementation of the circular by the Lagos State Government.
