The Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has suspended its strike which commenced on April 1.

Uyilawa Okhuaihesuyi, president of the association, confirmed the development to Newsmen today.

The decision to suspend the strike comes after the signing of a new agreement with the federal government, concerning issues raised in NARD’s 13-point demand.

At a meeting that lasted hours and stretched into the late hours of Friday, the federal government had promised to address the issues raised by the doctors, including salary arrears and owed allowances.

Chris Ngige, minister of labour and employment, had said on Saturday in Abuja that a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) was signed after a conciliatory meeting between representatives of the federal government and those of NARD.

Speaking with journalists after the meeting, Ngige said the federal government has set up a committee to look into the issue of irregular payment, adding that the panel will revert within the next 72 hours.
