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.
