Nigerian doctors signalled the beginning of their national strike on Thursday, with an apology to Nigerians, who will be affected by the strike.

In a message on Twitter, the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors(NARD) said:

“Nigerians must understand that we love them and the strike is not intended to hurt them but to challenge the Nigerian government”.

NARD urged “@MBuhari @Fmohnigeria @LabourMinNG whose responsibilities amongst others is to care for her citizens and labour force to do the needful”.×343&!3&btvi=2&fsb=1&xpc=lNwvtZKdzB&p=https%3A//

The Twitter message also came with a quote that the doctors said is their favourite behind closed doors:

“I love what I do. I hate what I have to do”.

In an interview on Wednesday, NARD president, Dr. Uyilawa Okhuaihesuyi said:
“I want Nigerians to ask the government to be more responsible; and there’s nothing that can make us avert this strike”.
