The Abuja chapter of the Association of Resident Doctors (ARD) has embarked on an indefinite strike.

This comes a few hours after a third case of coronavirus (COVID-19) was confirmed in the country.

In a statement on Tuesday in Abuja, Roland Aigbovo, president of the association, said the action is as a result of the salary arrears owed them by the FCT administration.

He said members of the association considered the challenge of coronavirus in the country and the condition of patients before taking the decision.

Aigbovo said their salaries have been irregular since the introduction of the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS).

He said the association has issued warnings and ultimatums, but that the government has not done anything to address their demands.

On Monday, resident doctors at the Federal Medical Centre, Jabi, Abuja, began a three-day warning strike over non-payment of shortfalls in their salaries.
