The National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has suspended its nationwide strike.
This comes 10 days after the resident doctors commenced an industrial action, which has paralysed health services in various government-owned hospitals across the country.
According to Channels Television, Dr Uyilawa Okhuaihesuyi, President of NARD, confirmed the suspension of the strike on Saturday in Abuja.
He explained that the leadership of the union took the decision to suspend the strike, after a virtual meeting with members, which lasted about 15 hours.
Okhuaihesuyi added that the union will address a press conference on its decision on Sunday.
The NARD had on Saturday signed a Memorandum of Action (MoA) with the Federal Government, to end the industrial action after their meeting on Friday.
Chris Ngige, Minister of Labour and Employment, chaired the Friday meeting which lasted about six hours, with Minister of State for Health, Olorunnimbe Mamora, also in attendance.
