NARD Signs MoU With FG, May Call-off Strike Monday

Doctors under the aegis of the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) may likely call off their strike within the next 48 hours.
This is the result of the reconciliation meeting the association had with the Federal Government, represented by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige on Friday. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the government and the NARD after the meeting.

Earlier, the doctors’ association also held a meeting with the National Assembly Joint Health Committee – both the Senate and House of Representatives Committee Chair on Health, and other relevant stakeholders in attendance.

The NARD, however, stressed that MoU would be taken back to the National Executive Council (NEC) of the NARD, which will analyze the content of the MoU, and decide to accept what the government is offering and suspend the strike or extend the ultimatum because there are timelines for many of the things in the MoU.
