National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has suspended its nationwide strike across Nigeria with a condition that the federal government will fulfil its demands within a six-week window period.
The doctors called off the strike which began Monday, August 2 2021 after 64 days.
NARD President Dr Dare Ishaya said the doctors are scheduled to resume work on Wednesday, October 6.
NARD noted that the Federal Government expressed interest to fulfil some of its minimum demands.
Some of the demands include payment of the Medical Residency Training Fund (MRTF), payment of outstanding salaries to its members on GIFMIS platform.
NARD said the Nigerian government also agreed to withdraw the circular by the Head of Service removing House Officers from the Scheme of Service.
The government is reported to have agreed to pay death-in-service benefits to its members who lost their lives in the line of duty during the COVID-19 pandemic, among others.
