The National Association of Resident Doctors has suspended its 10 days strike embarked on since April 1.
The Federal Government signed a Memorandum of Action (MoA) with striking Doctors to end the strike action.
The strike was officially suspended on Saturday evening after a virtual meeting of the National Executive Council (NEC) of the National Association of Resident Doctors, NARD.
Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige, confirmed this on Saturday in Abuja disclosing that the new MoA was signed after a conciliatory meeting between representatives of the Government and those of NARD.
Ngige noted that the Saturday’s meeting became necessary to amend the first MoA signed with the striking doctors.
The National President of the Association, Dr Uyilawa Okhuaihesuyi
confirmed the decision of NARD to suspend the strike, which has paralyses medical activities at the government hospitals across the country.
Okhuaihesuyi said the strike was suspended due to their responsibility to Nigerians and the fact that the Federal government has met some of their demands.
