The leadership of National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) on Saturday suspended its ongoing nationwide strike and has directed its members to resume work on Monday.
The President of NARD, Dr Muhammad Adamu Askira, gave the directive in a communique read to journalists at the end of its extraordinary national executive council meeting held at the trauma centre of the National Hospital, Abuja. Askira appealed to members to suspend the strike until the next meeting scheduled for July 14.
Askira said, “In view of the genuine intervention of the Hon. Speaker and other key stakeholders, NARD hereby suspends the ongoing nationwide indefinite strike so as to enable government implement the agreements reached within the agreed time frame on or before July 14 2016.
“Work will resume from Monday June 27 2016 at 8am. This is with the view to relieve the impact of the strike on average Nigerians. We assure all our members to remain calm as they resume their normal duties and that no one would be victimised for taking part in this struggles.”
