The president, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), met with members of the Nigeria Medical Association on Friday.

The meeting is coming 40 days after the National Association of Resident Doctors declared an indefinite strike.

Recall that in the first week of the strike, the labour minister, Chris Ngige, while appearing on a Channels Television’s programme – Politics Today – said he had invoked the ‘no work, no pay rule,’ against the striking doctors, saying “they were taking the country for a ride.”

The health minister, Osagie Ehanire, would later back the application of the rule, noting that the ‘No Work, No Pay’ rule isn’t a punitive measure against the striking doctors but an implementation of the provisions of law.

He said embarking on industrial action in the middle of an outbreak is “unconscionable.”
