Resident doctors suspend strike, to resume Friday

The National Association of Resident Doctors, NARD, has suspended its strike.

The suspension was announced in the early hours of Thursday after a meeting of the executives of the association.

The strike by the doctors, which commenced on September 4, crippled activities in public hospitals across Nigeria.

The federal government had earlier said it had met many of the demands of the doctors, including payment of salary arrears.

‎Addressing journalists on the decision to suspend the strike, the Chairman of NARD, UCH, Ibadan chapter, Segun Olaopa, said “the decision was reached following appeals from the federal government that more time should be given to enable them meet the demands of the doctors.”

Mr. Olaopa, however, said that there will be a review in two weeks time to determine how far the government had gone to honour their agreements. – Premium Times
