Another order as sought by the applicants was for an order of interlocutory injunction compelling all members of the respondent in all States of the Federation to suspend the said industrial action it commenced on Aug. 2.
NARD claimed that one of its reason for the strike was due to the failure of the government to meet its demands after they entered a memorandum of action in 2014
One of the demands was for the withdrawal of the circular by the Head of Service removing House Officers from the scheme of service.
The applicants on their part in their affidavit in support of motion ex-parte had stated that the subject matter before the court was of serious urgency given its nature which had to do with life and death.
In addition, the affidavit said that the strike action by the respondent which had been ongoing for more than two weeks was wrecking pains and untold suffering on the citizenry.
The untold suffering according to the affidavit is ”accounting for numerous death of persons who could not access the medical services provided by the respondent”.
