National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has suspended its nationwide strike with immediate effect from Monday, June 22.
The association in a communique issued on Sunday, said the decision to suspend the industrial action followed a virtual meeting of over 300 of its members.
According to the NARD President, Aliyu Sokomba, the National Executive Council decided to suspend the strike in order to give the federal and state governments time to fulfil the outstanding demands of the association.
He added that the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha and the Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum, Kayode Fayemi have begged them to call off the strike.
The Association said the suspension of its strike would be called off if the governments do not keep to their end of the bargain.
