The National Association of Resident Doctors have suspended its 64-day strike, which commenced on August 2, 2021.

The doctors have however given the Federal Government a six-week window to fulfil its demands after which it will call a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting to review the progress made.

Providing a further details, the NARD noted that the basis of the suspension was the obvious efforts by the Federal Government to fulfil some of its minimum demands.

The demands include the payment of the Medical Residency Training Fund (MRTF), payment of outstanding salaries to its members on GIFMIS platform, withdrawal of the circular by the Head of Service removing House Officers from the Scheme of Service, payment of death-in-service benefits to its members who lost their lives in the line of duty during the COVID-19 pandemic, among others.
