Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors Suspend Strike

The Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has suspended its 64-day strike.

The association however gave the Federal Government six weeks to fulfil its demands after which it will call a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting to review the progress made.

According to the Nigerian resident doctors, the basis of the suspension was the obvious efforts by the Federal Government to fulfil some of its minimum demands such as the payment of the Medical Residency Training Fund (MRTF), payment of outstanding salaries to its members on GIFMIS platform, withdrawal of the circular by the Head of Service removing House Officers from the Scheme of Service, payment of death-in-service benefits to its members who lost their lives in the line of duty during the COVID-19 pandemic, among others.

The President of the NARD, Dr Dare Ishaya, its members will resume work on Wednesday morning.

Details shortly…
