The Federal Capital Territory Administration has warned striking resident doctors to return to their duty posts within the next 24 hours or face mass sack.

Speaking at a news conference in Abuja, the FCT Minister of State, Dr. Ramatu Aliyu, said the directives was necessary after an emergency meeting of top management staff of the FCTA.

Naija News recalls that the doctors had gone on strike last week over what they alleged were irregularities in their January and February salaries, but the Minister said the problem was not peculiar to the doctors, adding that some of the doctors were even overpaid.

She said in spite of pleas to allow for time to rectify the system error so that all hands could be on deck to contain the spread of the Coronavirus, the doctors have refused to resume work.

“As a result, an emergency meeting of top management staff was held this afternoon where it was resolved that all necessary measures must be taken to ensure that residents do not suffer as a result of the strike by the resident doctors. In the meantime, the Administration has given the striking doctors 24 hours to resume work after which they should consider themselves as having exited themselves from the FCT Administration”, she declared.
