Nigerian Doctors Calls off Strike

The National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has called off its strike on Thursday, less than a week after it began.

The association made this information opened to the public in a statement made available to PREMIUM TIMES.  It said its National Executive Council resolved to suspend the strike with effect from Friday by 8 a.m.

It said the decision to call off the strike was taken so it could give the federal government time to meet its demands. The association said, will review this decision in two weeks.

The doctors union, however, said local chapters of its association that are not satisfied with the conditions of service are allowed to continue the industrial action at their respective states.

“NEC resolved to suspend the ongoing indefinite nationwide strike action from tomorrow 11th of September 2020 by 8am

“However local chapters where the conditions of service have not improved should continue on the industrial action at the respective states until their demands are met to be reviewed in 2 weeks’ time,” the statement said.
