Resident Doctors Suspend Strike, Give FG Four-Week Ultimatum


The National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has suspended its nationwide industrial action.

This comes 10 days after the doctors commenced the strike.

The President of NARD, Dr Uyilawa Okhuaihesuyi, confirmed the suspension of the strike to newsmen on Saturday in Abuja.

He, however, noted that the Federal Court has been given four weeks to meet its demands.

He said:

“The strike has been suspended. The government gave us some good comebacks from our negotiations. We had an emergency National Executive Council (NEC) meeting an hour ago, and we decided to suspend the strike for four weeks.”
