The National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has suspended its 10-day strike embarked upon to drive home the unpaid salaries and other issues by the Federal Government.
It, however, said it will review the suspended industrial action in two weeks’ time to assess government’s level of compliance with the agreements reached with the association.
The strike by the doctors, which commenced on September 4, crippled activities in public hospitals across Nigeria.
The federal government had earlier said it had met many of the demands of the doctors, including payment of salary arrears.
Addressing journalists on the decision to suspend the strike, the Chairman of NARD, UCH, Ibadan chapter, Segun Olaopa, said “the decision was reached following appeals from the public that the doctors should give the federal government more time to meet their demands.”
Mr. Olaopa, however, said that there will be a review in two weeks time to determine how far the government had gone to honour their agreements.
