Striking Doctors Agree to Resume Work

There are indications that the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD), has called off its one week old strike.
The suspension was announced in the early hours of Thursday after a meeting of the executives of the association.
‎Addressing journalists of its decision to suspend the strike, the Chairman of NARD, UCH, Ibadan chapter, Segun Olaopa, said “the decision was reached following appeals from the public that the doctors should give the Federal Government more time to meet their demands.”
Olaopa, however, said that there will be a review in next two weeks to determine how far the government had gone to honour their agreements.
The strike by the doctors, which commenced on September 4, crippled activities in public hospitals across Nigeria.
The Federal Government had earlier said it had met many of the demands of the doctors, including payment of salary arrears.
