Court Orders Resident Doctors To Suspend Ongoing Strike.

On Monday, the National Industrial Court, Abuja has ordered the protesting resident doctors to suspend their ongoing strike.

The National Association of Resident Doctors commenced the nationwide strike on the 1st of August over poor working conditions, government’s disregard for previous agreements and irregular pay.

Following the protest the ministry of labour dragged the resident doctors to court, with an appeal that the doctors should discontinue the strike.

The court order for the suspension of the strike by Justice John Targema read:

“Having looked especially on the affidavit of extreme urgency, the grounds of the application, the affidavit in support of same and arguments of counsel for the applicant.

“I also weighed the submissions and arguments of counsel on the law as it stands on this application.

“It is hereby ordered that claimant/applicant and the defendant/respondent suspend all forms of hostilities forthwith pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.”
