Kaduna Crisis: FG Intervenes, Invites El Rufai, NLC To Peace Parley

Striking resident doctors have reached an agreement with the federal government and may call off their strike later today.

The details of the agreement were contained in a communique jointly signed by the leadership of the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) and a government delegation after a late Friday meeting.

The doctors strike entered the ninth day on Saturday, crippling activities in public tertiary hospitals across the country and leaving patients and their relatives stranded.

A federal government delegation on Friday met with officials of NARD at the ministry of labour in Abuja in a bid to resolve dispute.

It will be recalled that the doctors commenced an indefinite strike on April 1 after a meeting with the government delegation on March 31 ended in a deadlock.
