Nigerian Doctors Suspend Strike

Members of the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) who went on strike on June 15 have suspended their indefinite strike.

They acknowledged provision of personal protective equipment (PPEs) in some hospitals but said they were still expecting more.

The doctors also announced the Medical Residency Training funding has been included in the revised 2020 budget through the intervention of Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila and will be implemented as soon as the budget is assented to the president.
