The National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has suspended its ongoing strike for an initial period of four weeks.
The president of the association, Okhuaihesuyi Uyilawa, confirmed the development to newsmen on Saturday night.
“The strike has been suspended for four weeks and isolation centres resume 8 a.m. on Sunday and others on Monday,” he said.
Ijaw News had earlier reported how the striking doctors reached an agreement with the federal government.
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.
