The National Association of Resident Doctors and the Federal Government have reached an agreement over the five-day warning strike embarked upon by the association.

The doctors met with the Senate and House of Representatives Committees on Health and the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, over the weekend to deliberate on their demands.

This was disclosed in a statement yesterday by the spokesman of the Ministry of Labour and Employment, OLAJIDE OSHUNDUN, who said a Memorandum of Understanding was signed at the end of a conciliation meeting convened by NGIGE in his office.

NARD had on May 17 commenced a five-day warning strike to press home its demands after a fourteen-day ultimatum to the government lapsed.

The doctors are demanding an immediate increment in the Consolidated Medical Salary Structure to the tune of two hundred percent of their current gross salaries.
