Just In: National Association of Resident Doctors Call Off Strike.

The National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has suspended its nationwide strike.

The doctors embarked on a nationwide strike last week amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

Some of their demands are the implementation of the medical residency training act in all federal and state hospitals and pay parity among doctors of equal cadre.

However, the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) in a statement said the doctors agreed to shelve their strike after meeting with Kayode Fayemi, governor of Ekiti and NGF chairman.

Fayemi was said to have commended them for remaining in the country in spite of the opportunities and lucrative offers they could get abroad.

The governor reportedly said the NGF would sit and consider their grievances with a view of finding a lasting solution to the issues they have raised.
