The Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has called off its strike that had been in effect for two months. In accordance with our information, the medical doctors are scheduled to resume work on Wednesday.
You may recall that in August, the doctors’ union went on strike as a result of a disagreement with the federal government over the lack of medical equipment available at public tertiary care hospitals.
Following a meeting between delegates from the Nigerian Medical Association and the Nigerian Agricultural Research and Development Corporation (NARD) on Sunday in Abuja, the Nigerian Medical Association issued a communique signed by its Secretary-General, Ekpe Philips Uche, advising the NARD to suspend its ongoing industrial action.
On August 21, the National Military Academy (NMA) issued a directive to the National Officers Committee (NOC) to ensure that the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed with the federal government was carried out.
According to Godiya Ishaya, the president of the National Agricultural Research and Development Corporation, “We have officially suspended the strike and will resume at 8:00 am on Wednesday.” We reached a decision in the wee hours of this morning. We held an emergency meeting from 5:30 p.m. on Sunday until the early morning hours of today, and the National Executive Committee (NEC) decided that, after reviewing the progress made thus far, the strike would be suspended.”
