Resident doctors suspend strike
The National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has suspended the strike action it embarked upon 10 days ago and asked doctors to resume work from 8am today.

In an sms by the doctors, which was forwarded to newsmen by Minister of Labour and Employment Chris Ngige early hours of Thursday, the doctors said they resolved to suspend the strike and to reassess situation in two weeks at its annual general meeting in Abuja.
Onyebueze directed members to resume work 8:00am, Friday, September, 2017.
The doctors’ suspension of action is coming just as the joint health sector unions have given a notice to begin indefinite strike on Wednesday next week. 15th
