Resident doctors have suspended their 64 day old strike, and will resume duty on Wednesday.
But the doctors give federal government a six week deadline to meet their outstanding demands.
National president of National Association of Resident Doctors, Doctor Godiya Ishaya, announced this on Monday morning in Abuja, after a tense emergency meeting of the association’s national executive meeting on Sunday night.
Godiya explains that at the expiration of the six week deadline, the national executive council of the union will meet to review the progress made on the implementation of the outstanding demands of the doctors.
He says the strike was suspended after the association, following agreement by the federal government to meet the minimum demands of the striking resident doctors.
