Resident doctors suspend strike
The leadership of the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors has suspended its one-week warning strike which it embarked upon on May 17.
President of the association, Dr. Emeka Orji, said the association suspended the action for two weeks after reaching some agreement with the government on Friday.
He, however, said the doctors will meet again on the second day of June to review progress made with the agreement signed after which the association will decide on their next line of action.
Theeditorial.ng earlier reported that the resident doctors and the Federal Government have reached an agreement over the five-day warning strike embarked upon by the association.
Recall that on May 17, NARD began a five-day warning strike to press home its demands after a 14-day ultimatum to the government lapsed.
The doctors are demanding, among other things, the payment of all salary arrears for their members as well as the immediate upgrade of infrastructure in public hospitals.
