After 60 days of paralysing activities at various medical centres across the country, the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has suspended its national wide strike.



It will be recalled that the doctors started the industrial action precisely on August 2 over “irregular payment of salaries” and other issues.

All the efforts of different stakeholders, including Buhari, Ministers, 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.

When speaking in an interview with TheCable on Monday, Godiya Ishaya, NARD president, 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.
