Nigeria Approves 7 Years Tenure For Doctors’ Resident Training

The federal government of Nigeria on Wednesday, October 17, announced the approval of seven years tenure for doctors’ resident training.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, said this while briefing State House correspondents of the outcome of the weekly meeting of the Federal Executive Council at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

“Government has fixed a tenure for doctors’ resident training at seven years. It is not a permanent job,” the minister said.

According to him, the decision was taken based on the report of a technical committee presented to the government.

As part of the recommendations in the report, Ngige said the government was also demanding that there should be tenure of a maximum of two terms for executives of trade unions.
