…To Resume Work On Tuesday
The Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has suspended its two months old strike following the recommendations of the emergency delegates meeting of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) held in Abuja yesterday (Sunday).
The doctors suspend the strike following a communiqué which was issued and signed by the NMA Secretary General, Dr Ekpe Philips Uche, which advised the striking doctors to stop industrial action based on the ongoing intervention by the Association.
Other resolutions by the NMA at the meeting includes; a mandate to the National Officers Committee (NOC) to ensure speedy implementation of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)/signed with the Federal Government on August, 21, 2021 and the NOC to report back to the National Executive Council, NEC, of NMA periodically on the progress being made on the implementation of the MOU.
The NMA also mandated the NOC to continue to interface with the Chairmen of the state branches including the FCT on the progress being made.
The striking doctors are to resume work by Tuesday after 63 days of strike.
