Resident Doctors Suspend Nationwide Strike



doctorThe National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has suspended its nationwide indefinite strike which commenced on June 20.

President of the association, Dr. Mohammad Askira, made the disclosure on Saturday in Abuja while briefing newsmen on the outcome of the association’s National Executive Council meeting held on Friday.

He said that the strike was suspended to enable the federal government implement the agreement reached with the association on or before July 14, adding that the doctors would resume work on July 27.

He said that the meeting also resolved to review the progress of government intervention at the next NEC meeting of the association scheduled for July 25 to 30 in Keffi for appropriation action.

Askira expressed gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari for his promise to implement all the agreement reached between the association and the government.

He commended the president for directing the Minister of Health to resolve the impasse in the best interest of Nigerians.

He also expressed gratitude to the Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) among others for their interventions to resolve the crisis.

Askira urged members of the association to remain calm as they resume their normal duties and promised that none of them would be victimised for participating in the strike.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the association commenced strike on June 20 to press home its demands which included, non payment of salaries, non availability of residency training guidelines, among others.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.
