Resident Doctors Suspend Planned Nationwide Strike

Written by on January 30, 2023

The Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has shelved its plan to embark on an industrial action.

This comes after the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the association in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital, where it reviewed the progress on their demands.

Recall that the doctors had threatened to embark on a nationwide strike earlier this month over the inability of the government to address their demands.

However, at the end of the NEC meeting, the doctors commended the Federal Government for the timely release of the reviewed circular on the medical residency training fund.

The committee also hailed the Minister of Labour and Employment for the other steps taken to upscale the welfare of its members, also urging the Federal Government to pay all other outstanding arrears owed its members.
