The National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) had suspended its 10-day-old strike and directed members to resume work immediately.
In a statement issued on Thursday in Abuja NARD President, Dr Onyebueze John, said the Executive Council of NARD met from Tuesday to Thursday where it reviewed the offer from government
following a re-negotiated Memorandum of Terms of Settlement (MTS).
He said that after due consideration of the efforts by government and progress made in addressing the items on the notice of their ultimatum, and strike, as well as implementing the contents of the re-negotiated MTS the association resolved to suspend the strike.
John said the council would reassess the situation at the association’s Annual General Meeting in Abuja coming up in two weeks.
“We sincerely thank the public, press and our families for their support during this period of strike” he said.
It was recalled that NARD declared indefinite strike Sept 5, to press for the payment of shortfall in salary of members among other demands.
