Resident Doctors Call Off Strike, To Resume On Wednesday

Two months after the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) began full-blown strike, the association has suspended its nationwide strike.

Recall that on August 2, NARD embarked on a strike over “irregular payment of salaries”, among other issues.

Efforts of different stakeholders, including President Muhammadu Buhari and the house of representatives, to ensure the resident doctors shelve the strike did not yield the desired result.

The National Industrial Court, in a ruling on a suit filed by the federal government, had asked the resident doctors to return to work.

Meanwhile, the striking doctors faulted the court’s ruling, vowing to appeal the order.

The president of NARD, Godiya Ishaya while speaking in an interview on Monday said the association has officially called off the strike.

He said the decision to call off the strike was made in an emergency meeting with the association’s national executive council.

He added that the doctors will resume on Wednesday.

“We’ve officially suspended the strike to resume 8:00 am on Wednesday. We made the decision in the wee hours of today. We held an emergency meeting from 5:30pm on Sunday to the morning hours of today, and the NEC decided that having reviewed the progress made so far, the strike should be suspended,” he said.
