The Nigerian Government has initiated a negotiation meeting with the National Association of Resident Doctors to address its concerns and demands.

SaharaReporters had reported that the resident doctors threatened to embark on a fresh strike action to force the government to meet their demands.

The doctors gave the Nigerian Government three weeks to either meet their demands or face total strike action.
