Resident doctors call off strike after 2 months
The Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) Suspends strike action after over two months.
They however gave the Federal government of Nigeria 6 weeks opportunity to fulfill their demands in a strike that started on August 2, 2021.
Doctors said they would convene their National Executive Council to review progress made for the next line of action.
The NARD noted that 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.
NARD’s President, Dr. Dare Ishaya confirmed to journalists on Monday that the strike has been called off, while Resident Doctors have been asked to resume work on Wednesday.
