The National Association of Resident Doctors has shelved its planned strike and will continue its negotiations with the Federal GoverNment and other stakeholders to drive home its demands.
The President of the National Association of Resident Doctors, Dr. Dare Ishaya, disclosed this on Thursday while speaking to newsmen.
Ishaya explained that the decision was taken on Wednesday during the association’s extraordinary National Executive Council meeting, noting that the Association examined the issues and discovered that the 2022 Medical Residency Training Fund had been released and the payment was effected on Tuesday.
On the issue of the implementation of the new hazard allowance, he added that the Association also discovered that the Ministry of Finance has approved the release of funds for the payment.
Ishaya, however, said that the association’s NEC will continue the ongoing negotiations with all relevant authorities to ensure that the other unresolved issues were sorted out amicably.
