Industrial Court Orders Resident Doctors To Resume Work ImmediatelyNational Industrial Court in Abuja has on Wednesday, September 16 ordered the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) to cease its industrial action immediately.

It would be recalled that NARD embarked on the strike on September 7 to resolve issues bordering on group life insurance for doctors and other health care workers.

Part of their grievances are also payments of death-in-service benefit to next of kin/beneficiaries, universal implementation of the Medical Residency Training Act in all federal and state hospitals.

NARD equally wanted the review of the hazard allowance of healthcare workers and payment of the COVID-19 inducement allowance.

However, delivering a ruling in an order of interim injunction, the judge, Ibrahim Galadima, ordered NARD to resume duties forthwith pending determination of the pending motion on notice.

Mr Galadima made the order sequel to an ex parte application filed by Frank Tietie, counsel to the applicant, Citizens Advocacy for Social & Economic Rights and Association of Women in Trade & Agriculture.

In the application, the applicant had prayed for an interim order of the court directing the NARD, being a provider of the essential services of health necessary to the fundamental right to life, to immediately cease its strike action and resume duties forthwith pending the hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice.

Joined as co-respondents in the motion are the Minister of Health, Minister of Labour&Productivity and Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice.

The court, after granting the prayer, also fixed October 8, for the hearing of the substantive suit.
