News reports have comfirmed that the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has temporarily put on hold its strike which kickstarted on April 1,2021.
Dr Uyilawa Okhuaihesuyi, who is the incumbent President of the NARD reportedly,formally informed "The Nation" that the development was as a result of some positive outcomes of the meetings with the Nigerian government and the interventions of the relevant health stakeholders.
However, Okhuaihesuyi said that NARD gave the government 4 weeks of grace to yield to their relevant requests.
He comfirmed the temporary suspension of the strike because the government conceeded to the assurance of meeting their myriads of demands during official deliberations.
President of the NARD disclosed that an emergency National Executive Council (NEC) meeting was held not long ago and the association decided to put the strike on hold for 4 weeks.
It can be recalled that many Nigerians have been lamenting about the deteriorating health of patients who have been missing important medical interventions as a result of the strike embarked upon by NARD.
On its part,the medical association allegedly commenced the strike when it was obvious that the Federal Government was not forthcoming to yield to the assorted demands for their members.
