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.
