The National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has said it would meet Tuesday to review the latest offers by the Federal Government.

A member of the National Executive Council of NARD, Dr Arikawe Adeolu, said this in Abuja yesterday.

Adeolu, the General Secretary of NARD, Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Jabi, Abuja, said the outcome of the meeting would determine whether the nationwide indefinite strike would be called off or not.

“We were supposed to hold a meeting on September 8 but it didn’t hold because the essence of the meeting was defeated.

“We thought that government would have paid by then but we got nothing so the meeting has been postponed to September 12; it will be a closed door meeting to carry out an appraisal of events so far.

“The federal government claims that money has been paid to the hospitals so we need to confirm from members across the country if they have received their salary arrears,” Adeolu said.
