The National Association of Resident Doctors has suspended its nationwide strike.
The strike which began on August second, has been suspended with effect from eight o’clock in the morning of Wednesday, according to the President of the association, Dr Godiya Ishaya.
Dr Ishaya, in an interview, said, they are suspending the strike for six weeks to give room for movement in some of the items they noticed a stalemate.
He said there was a stalemate in the enrollment of their members into the IPPIS and payment of their areas.
On the issue of ‘no work, no pay, Dr Ishaya said they have not agreed to forfeit their salaries and noted that the strike was unnecessarily prolonged because of the government’s response to it and added that the National Executive Council of the Association would meet after six weeks to determine the next line of action.
The government was invoking the trade dispute article forty-one, that is the ‘no work, no pay and since they have been enrolled into IPPIS, it means there was not going to be any salary into their accounts and without them being paid, they would not get their areas.
