Resident doctors suspend its planned nationwide strike

The Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has suspended its plan to embark on a nationwide strike.

The doctors had demanded for an upward review of the medical residency training fund, non-payment of outstanding arrears of the new hazard allowance, as well as the non-payment of the consequential adjustment of the minimum wage to some of its members.

The planned strike was suspended after the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the association in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital, on Sunday, January 29.

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.

They also hailed the Minister of Labour and Employment for the other steps taken to upscale the welfare of its members
