“It was the very first time that NARD would be putting their grievances before the Forum.

“The chairman of the NGF and Governor of Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi, appealed to the doctors to call off the strike, promising that the NGF would sit in a week’s time and consider their grievances along with all the other members of the Forum with a view to finding a lasting solution to those of their problems that are immediately possible for the Forum to tackle.

“The doctors, led by their president, Dr Aliyu Sokomba and their National Secretary Dr Bilkisu, left the NGF Secretariat with a promise to consult the members of their association and await the action of the governors on the matter.

“It is on that basis that the President reached out to the DG of the NGF this evening (Saturday) as they close the NARD meeting to announce that they are calling off the strike to allow the governors to address their complaints.”
