Following the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by the Federal Government and the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) on Wednesday, Nigerian Doctors have finally called off their strike.
It would be recalled that Nigerian Doctors had embarked on a nation wide strike due to the failure of the government to meet their requests made in June.
In a communique issued at the end of a marathon conciliation meeting presided over by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, in Abuja, the parties agreed that the COVID-19 isolation centres now had sufficient provision of Personal Protective Equipment
The FG and NARD also agreed on the provision of group life insurance for doctors and other healthcare workers and payment of death-in-service benefit to next-of-kin/beneficiaries.
Another meeting between the leadership of NARD and the government representatives is scheduled for Friday.
