Nigerian Doctors Call Off Nationwide Strike

After many months, Nigerian doctors have finally called off its nationwide strike.

The strike was called off by the leadership of the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD). The doctors are now set to resume on Wednesday, according to Vanguard.

Recall that in August, the doctor’s union embarked on strike following a disagreement with the federal government over the non-availability of medical equipment at public tertiary hospitals.

In a communique signed by the Nigerian Medical Association, Secretary-General Ekpe Philips Uche, after the meeting held among delegates of NMA and NARD on Sunday in Abuja, the NMA advised NARD to stop the ongoing industrial action.

At the meeting, NMA mandated the National Officers Committee, NOC, to ensure the implementation of the memorandum of understanding signed with the federal government on August 21.

The association asked NOC to report back to the National Executive Council of NMA periodically on the progress being made on implementing the memorandum of understanding.

NMA also mandated the NOC to continue to interface with the chairmen of the state branches, including the FCT, on the progress being made.

According to Godiya Ishaya, NARD president, the association has officially called off the strike.

He said, ” We’ve officially suspended the strike to resume at 8:00 am on Wednesday. We made the decision in the wee hours of today. We held an emergency meeting from 5:30 pm on Sunday to the morning hours of today, and the NEC decided that having reviewed the progress made so far, the strike should be suspended,”

 The doctors’ strike entered the ninth week on Monday, crippling activities in public tertiary hospitals across the country, leaving patients stranded.
