The national industrial court has ordered the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) to suspend its ongoing strike.
The FG had instituted a suit against the association after an unsuccessful attempt by the house of representatives to mediate between the federal government and NARD.
FG asked the court for an order of interlocutory injunction restraining members of NARD from continuing with the action.
Ruling on the application, Bashar Alkali, the Judge ordered the suspension of the strike, saying the applicants proved that unless this application is granted, many lives will be lost.
“It is my firm believe that if the court does not intervene at this stage, there is no amount of money that can compensate for the lives of Nigerians who would lose their lives if the members of the defendants continue with their strike.
“I find the application meritorious and I resolve the lone issue for determination in favour of the claimant applicant.
“I grant all the prayers as contained in the face of the motion paper and in effect, I hereby grant an order of interlocutory injunction that members of the defendant-respondent in all the states of the federation are hereby restrained from continuing with the industrial action embarked on since on the second day of August 2021 pending the determination of the substantive suit.
“Also, I hereby order all members of the defendants/respondents in all the states of the federation to suspend the said industrial action commenced on the second day of August 2021 with immediate effect and to resume work immediately pending the determination of the substantive suit,” the judge held.
