Resident doctors at the Federal Medical Centre, Jabi, Abuja, on Monday 13th January, 2020 began a warning strike, which will last for three days over non-payment of months of salaries.
The President of the Association, Dr Adejo Arome, publicize the decision to embark on the strike at a congress held on Monday 13th January, accusing the management of not willing to pay.
The President also claimed that though the Acting Medical Director of the hospital was willing to pay the arrears, he was advised otherwise by Mr. Bako Achi, one of the hospital’s accountants.
Arome said; We would only back down on the strike if we received alert as proof of payment for the month of December 2019 salary shortfall arrears.
The resident doctors also called for the removal of Achi, accusing him of insubordination and being behind the non-payment of their salaries.
