The Association of Resident Doctors, the Federal Capital Territory, administration chapter, says it will commence an indefinite strike on August 25.

The union made this known in a statement jointly signed by its president, Michael Olarewaju and secretary Roland Aigbovo, in Abuja.

It said that the impending strike follows the failure of FCT administration to repay obnoxious tax deduction from July salaries of staff among other demands.

It would be recalled that the association had earlier condemned the tax deduction of 78,000 naira from each of its members’ July salaries against the initial 36,000 naira imposed on the doctors.

The union noted that it had on August 1, 2018, issued a-21 day ultimatum effective from August 3 to FCT administration, calling on the minister, Alhaji Muhammad Bello to address the issue.
