Resident medical doctors have agreed to suspend their 10-day old strike which almost crippled services in federal hospitals nationwide.
The decision was taken on Thursday’s morning after a meeting between top officials of the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) and Health Minister, Professor Isaac Adewole in Abuja.
Details of the meeting is not immediately known.
But a member of the national executive council, Doctor Segun Olaopa, said the strike was suspended following a plea from the presidency for more time to implement the agreement signed with resident doctors.
Olaopa who is chairman of the association at the University College Hospital, Ibadan, however explained that the association will meet in the next two weeks to appraise the implementation of the agreement.
