The indefinite strike of resident doctors was put on hold on July 26 under the authority of the Nigerian Association of Resident doctor (NARD).

This was revealed to reporters by its National President, Dr. Emeka Orji, on Friday in Abuja.

He said there will be a reassessment in two weeks.

We merely put the strike on hold, he remarked. Tomorrow (Saturday, August 12) at 8 a.m., work will start up again.

“In two weeks, we will evaluate the progress made.”

This comes after a number of stakeholder contributions urging the association to either start the industrial action in the first place or to halt it sooner.
Following the federal government’s failure to satisfy its obligations on July 26, the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) launched a complete and indefinite strike beginning on Wednesday.

On the same day, President Bola Tinubu and other pertinent stakeholders met with Hon. Tajudeen Abbas, Speaker of the House of Representatives, to discuss the conflict involving the Federal Government and the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD).
On Tuesday, August 10, the striking members of the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) were prepared to end their two-week strike following a private meeting with principal officers of the Senate.
