The Association of Resident Doctors in the Federal Capital Territory Administration, ARD-FCTA, have embarked on an indefinite strike action from September 1, 2020 to protest unfavourable work conditions.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Chairman and Secretary of the association, Roland Aigbovo and Mustapha Ibrahim.

It said the decision was taken due to non-payment of the COVID-19 hazard allowance and the non-implementation of the variation of the 2018 promotion exercise.

The association said, “Due to the insensitivity displayed by the Office of the Permanent Secretary, FCT, and widespread agitations among our members in the various FCT hospitals and isolation/treatment centres, we regret to notify the administration and by extension the general public that the association would embark on an indefinite strike action with effect from 8am, 1st September, 2020, until the payment of the COVID-19 hazard and inducement allowance is received and the variation of the 2018 promotion exercise implemented.

“We regret any inconvenience this might cause the Federal Capital Territory Administration and the general public needing healthcare delivery during this period.

“We implore the FCT Administration to also look into the other myriads of problems raised in our earlier communication to the administration dated 14th August, 2020, with a view to resolving all pending issues so as to maintain industrial harmony.”
