Nigerian Resident Doctors Suspend Nationwide Strike

Members of the National Association of Resident Doctors have suspended their industrial action.

The association’s President, Aliyu Sokomba, confirmed this on Thursday evening.

Sokomba, however, said that notwithstanding the suspension of the industrial action, negotiations with Federal Government will continue on Friday morning.

Punch gathered that the strike was suspended following an understanding reached with the Federal Government on Wednesday.

He said, “Following our meeting yesterday (Wednesday) with government, we had a National Executive Council meeting and resolved to once again suspend our strike to allow the government time to address our demands. So the strike is suspended to be reviewed in two weeks’ time.”

The doctors had embarked on an industrial action on September 7 over government’s inability to meet their demands, including insurance package, payment of the outstanding COVID-19 allowance as well as the payment of medical residency training fund.
