Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D) graduates of 2021, say they will halt their services on Monday, August 29. 

According to them, this is to compel the Ministry of Health and other stakeholders to address delays with their clearance, appointments and salaries. 

In a press statement issued on Friday, August 12, the group alleged that allowances being paid to some colleagues at their respective hospitals have ceased as a result of the delays.

Portions of the press statement also said they will only return to work after their grievances are met. 

“In view of no timelines being set for follow ups on the tabled issues and next course of action, we have come to a consensus that we cannot continue working under these same conditions as it is not financially permissible.

We would want to inform all stakeholders about our collective decision to halt our housemanship effective August 29, 2022. 

We would be available to continue the housemanship as required by all once all our grievances are met.”

They are thus asking the stakeholders to release their appointment letters by the stipulated time to avoid any inconveniences.
