The National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) may suspend its strike today after a weekend of meetings aimed at resolving differences between the doctors and the government.
Sources said the strike would have been called off on Friday after the association's executives met with Labour Minister Emeka Wogu and his Health counterpart Onyebuchi Chukwu, but the suspension was held off until NARD executives met their members.
The meeting on Friday has been described as "long and fruitful" producing a communiqué signed by both parties.
The strike had crippled services in public hospitals across the nation following directives by NARD president Dr. Jibril Abdullahi.
Most affected in the nation's capital Abuja were the National Hospital and University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada, the venue where NARD executives met to decide to go on strike.
Health minister Chukwu had expressed "disappointment" at the resident doctors' strike describing it as "uncalled for."
