The association asked NOC to report back to the National Executive Council of NMA periodically on the progress being made on implementing the memorandum of understanding. NMA also mandated the NOC to continue to interface with the chairmen of the state branches, including the FCT, on the progress being made. According to Godiya Ishaya, NARD president, the association has officially called off the strike.

He said, ” We’ve officially suspended the strike to resume at 8:00 am on Wednesday. We made the decision in the wee hours of today. We held an emergency meeting from 5:30 pm on Sunday to the morning hours of today, and the NEC decided that having reviewed the progress made so far, the strike should be suspended,” The doctors’ strike entered the ninth week on Monday, crippling activities in public tertiary hospitals across the country, leaving patients stranded.
