The Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has suspended its nationwide strike and will resume work on Saturday.

The association’s national president Innocent Orji confirmed the development on Friday evening.

“Good evening. We just suspended the strike. Work to resume 8 am tomorrow,” he said in a terse message to Channels Television. “We will review the progress made in two weeks.”

The move is coming days after the doctors suspended their planned nationwide protest to press home their demands.

Earlier, the union’s executive had met with senators led by Senate President Godswill Akpabio.

NARD declared the “total and indefinite strike action” on July 25, 2023, over several demands including an increase in wages for the doctors.
