By Samuel Oyadongha

Yenagoa—Resident doctors at the Federal Medical Centre in Bayelsa State have declared a three days warning strike to draw government’s attention to irregularities in the payment of their salaries.

The resident doctors, under the aegis of Association of Resident Doctors of Nigeria, ARDN, Federal Medical Centre, Yenagoa, yesterday, said that the strike action was an open rejection of the 48 per cent salaries paid them by the Federal Government in the last four months.

President of ARDN, Dr. Okoye Chukwunonso, said information at their disposal was that it was only in the FMC Yenagoa that resident doctors were paid 48 per cent of their salaries since January this year.

“We have been having the challenge of being paid only 48 percent of our salaries in the past four months,” he said.
