Following the intervention of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, the National Association of Resident Doctors of Nigeria (NARD) has suspended its deliberate industrial action, which was once due to commence today, Monday twenty second July, 2019.

The union had at the end of its 39th Ordinary General Meeting in Benin City, Edo State in May, given a 40-day ultimatum, calling for the price of exquisite profits shortfalls and arrears of its members.

However, after the ultimatum, the Speaker had appealed to the resident doctors through the instantaneous previous secretary-general of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), Hon. Yusuf Sununu, a member of the House, to provide him time to make consultations on the problems at stake.

NARD’s National President, Olusegun Olaopa, who tested the suspension of the strike stated the union had to put it on maintain to honour the Speaker until Monday, 29, July when the Speaker would meet with the union.

Olaopa said: “It used to be based on the ultimatum that we gave earlier, which we served the Hon. Speaker. Based on the discussion with the Speaker, who really showed accurate intention to intervene in the matter, we felt that it is honourable for us to meet and take his intervention.

“For now, we considered trying to maintain on any action that we choose to take, which is supposed to be these days (yesterday), at our assembly day after today (today). But we idea that considering that the Hon. Speaker has intervened, we need to provide him the honour at least to meet with him and enable him to intervene in the count before we go ahead.

“So, the meeting has been constant for Monday. We are planning to make some concessions to permit us to meet with the Speaker first and see his properly intervention before we reflect onconsideration on any different action”.

Other demands of the resident docs as contained in their notification protected the fantastic placement in grade stages of doctors who suffered same scale promotion and for nation governments to look into their tertiary fitness institutions to right now halt the decay in supplying access to nice healthcare to the citizenry.
