MDCN Says Striking Doctors Will repeat Internship

The Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria has declared the ongoing strike by members of the National Association of Resident Doctor Illegal.

The medical council warned that any doctor who participated in the industrial action might repeat his or her internship without remuneration.

This was contained in a statement by the MDCN entitled, “Professional Ethics for House Officers/Interns,” issued on Monday by its Acting Registrar and Chief Executive, Dr. Tajudeen Sanusi.

The body advised Chief Medical Directors, Medical Directors and Medical Superintendents in various teaching hospitals to ensure that all resident doctors under their watch abide by all regulations guiding their internship.

However, resident doctors at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital, Edo State, the Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital, Ogbomoso, Oyo State and many tertiary hospitals across the country joined the nationwide strike called by their parent body, the National Association of Resident Doctors.

The doctors started an indefinite strike on Monday over the alleged failure of the Federal Government to meet demands bordering on their welfare.

*Repeat for what?They have no right to force them do they?


  1. That one na for interns o. Resident Doctors no be interns.

  2. there is always a counter group... apc i hail thee

  3. I know for a fact that by 2030,Nigeria will have to import doctors to treat Nigerians...mark my words

  4. 不不不 na houseofficers dey always suffer the strike... them go work tire with consultants as residents are on strike. Good thing is that the consultants won't admit patients, they will only be responsible for patients already on admission.
    I don't miss Nigeria mehn! Hellhole!
