NARD: Unwilling to call off strike

Members of the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors have expressed their willingness to call off their ongoing industrial action on Wednesday should the government meet its conditions.

The immediate past Secretary General of the association who is also a member of the National Executive Council, Dr Jerry Isogun, disclosed this in an interview yesterday.

Recall that NARD, at the end of its 41st Annual General Meeting, in Bauchi State, had expressed its dissatisfaction at the Federal Government who it said was responsible for the lingering industrial action.

But in the interview, Isogun explained, if the Federal government  are willing to pay the residency training fund and the arrears they owe, NARD will call off the strike.
