“We used to run three shifts – morning, afternoon and night. But we have resolved to suspend the shifts. We have resolved to all converge for morning duty and close at the same time,” a union official, Mustapha Kabir, told NAN.
Other reasons for the protest, according to Dr. John Agbo, the Chairman, Association of Resident Doctors, JUTH chapter, included management’s refusal to obey various court orders restraining it from sacking the physicians.
JUTH, in moving to sack the doctors, relied on the Federal Government circular of 2013, which stipulated that the doctors could serve for only six years.
Rwang said: “We were last paid in August 2016; our employers keep telling us to be patient. They keep telling us that we will soon be paid. But we are tired of fake promises.”
