Meanwhile, the Authorities turned into invoking trade dispute Article 41, which is the ‘no work, no pay.’ And for the reason that they were enrolled into IPPIS. This simply implies that there was no longer going to be any salaries in their accounts. On the oher hand, How do they get their areas without them being paid? It turned into a stalemate. we felt we ought to supply a platform to view if the government can pay their salaries and as well process their areas into their accounts, Ishaya said.


On the Contrary of ‘no work, no pay,’ presently we do not on any terms agreed to forfeit our salaries.  Moreover, the strike of the National Association of Resident doctors turned unnecessarily. But, this broadened due to the authority’s reaction towards the strike. However, the government took the issue to the court rather than setting up a meeting. A meeting that will provide good negotiations between the two parties, Ishaya added.

finally, Ishaya declared that the National Executive Council  could meet after six weeks to decide the next line of development.
