The National Association of Resident Doctors, NARD, has suspended its strike.

The announcement was made in the early hours of Thursday after a meeting of the executives the association.

It was gathered that the doctors failed to reach a decision in an earlier meeting.

The strike by the doctors, which commenced on the first week of Sepetember crippled activities in public hospitals in the Country.


The federal government had earlier said it had met many of the demands of the doctors, including payment of salary arrears.

‎The chairman of NARD UCH 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”.

Doctors had appealed to Nigerians to bear the situation as members of the association were pressing government to improve the healthcare delivery system in the country.

The doctors, however, assured the federal government after a marathon meeting on Wednesday, September 6, that they would only suspend the strike after members get credit alert from their banks, indicating payments of parts of the salary arrears that the government is owing to them.
