The National Association of Resident Doctors had embarked on industrial actions since Buhari left for his medical check-up, to protest non-payment of their due wages.

Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour and Employment, had accused the doctors of playing God.

The Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) had also threatened to join the strike after accusing political leaders of playing games with the health of Nigerians because they could afford overseas medical treatment.
