The Nigerian Medical Association, NMA, has secured a court injunction from the Nigerian Industrial Court restraining the Nigerian government from sacking resident doctors.
The injunction was granted Monday, nearly two weeks after the government fired the 16,000 resident doctors and suspended residency training.
The order came a day after the NMA suspended its strike that lasted more than seven weeks.
“We’ve secured court injunction against implementation of the circular suspending residency training programme and sack of residents,” the Secretary General of the NMA, Adewunmi Alayaki tweeted Monday.
“All the CMDS/MDs are expected to be served within the next 36 hours. Let’s remain calm,” he added.
