Resident doctors in Nigeria call off strike

The National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) in Nigeria said it has suspended its work to rule it embarked upon a week ago, after hours of a secret meeting with the Nigerian government.

The group’s president elect, Mr. Chinaka Ugochukwu, announced the suspension and also gave assurances that details about the decisions will be made public by the association, at a press briefing on Thursday, September 14, 2017.

NARD had on Monday, September 4, declared an indefinite strike action to protest poor welfare of members and demand for improved conditions of service.

The doctors, however, assured the federal government after a marathon meeting on Wednesday, September 6, that they would only suspend the strike after members get credit alert from their banks, indicating payments of parts of the salary arrears that the government is owing to them.
