BREAKING! ‘We are not satisfied,’ NARD Appeals Court ruling directing doctors to resume
The leadership of the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has faulted the ruling of the National Industrial Court (NIC) directing its members to return to work.
A communique jointly signed by NARD
President, Dr Uyilawa Okhuaihesuyi, and the union’s Secretary-General, Dr Jerry
Isogun, on Friday revealed that the doctors have begun the process to appeal
the ruling. “As we are all aware, especially those that were present in court
today (Friday), the NIC has given a ruling on the application for interlocutory
injunction filed by the Federal Government,” the statement said. “We are not
satisfied with the ruling.
“After consultations with our lawyers, we
have instructed our lawyers to appeal the ruling and file an application for
stay of execution.” The statement is in reaction to the ruling of Justice
Bashar Alkali who ordered the resident doctors to suspend their ongoing
industrial action and return to work immediately, pending the determination of
the substantive suit.
Justice Alkali who ruled on an
application by the government had also directed parties in the matter to return
to the negotiating table, saying no amount of money could compensate for the
loss of lives as a result of the impasse.
