The leadership of the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has confirmed the suspension of its one-week warning strike which it embarked upon on Wednesday, the 17th of May.


President of the association, Dr. Emeka Orji, told reporters on Monday that the association suspended the action for two weeks after reaching some agreement with the government over the weekend.


He, however, stated that the doctors will meet again on the second day of June this year to review progress made with the agreement signed after which the association will decide on their next line of action.


The resident doctors and the Federal Government have reached an agreement over the five-day warning strike embarked upon by the association.


On the 17th of May,  NARD began a five-day warning strike to press home its demands after a 14-day ultimatum to the government lapsed.
