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”.https://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/ads?client=ca-pub-8264632571551786&output=html&h=343&slotname=9019940553&adk=3654365259&adf=496702752&pi=t.ma~as.9019940553&w=412&lmt=1617269140&rafmt=1&psa=1&format=412×343&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.pmnewsnigeria.com%2F2021%2F04%2F01%2Fnigerian-doctors-begins-strike-with-an-apology-to-nigerians%2F&flash=0&fwr=1&fwrattr=true&rpe=1&resp_fmts=3&sfro=1&wgl=1&dt=1617269214304&bpp=12&bdt=1932&idt=2235&shv=r20210329&cbv=r20190131&ptt=9&saldr=aa&abxe=1&cookie=ID%3D638563c53f239b72-22b593c36fa600db%3AT%3D1605506538%3ART%3D1605506538%3AS%3DALNI_MZVSayvvu4e7oM-DQsicRCSBwgfvA&prev_fmts=0x0%2C412x343&nras=1&correlator=7838661622433&frm=20&pv=1&ga_vid=1569762374.1597259094&ga_sid=1617269216&ga_hid=1417947088&ga_fc=0&u_tz=60&u_his=2&u_java=0&u_h=915&u_w=412&u_ah=915&u_aw=412&u_cd=24&u_nplug=0&u_nmime=0&adx=0&ady=2101&biw=412&bih=671&scr_x=0&scr_y=179&eid=44739524%2C31060287%2C44740079%2C31060474%2C44739387%2C21066973&oid=3&pvsid=1402725004419124&pem=813&ref=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.pmnewsnigeria.com%2F&rx=0&eae=0&fc=1920&brdim=0%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C412%2C0%2C412%2C671%2C412%2C671&vis=1&rsz=o%7C%7CEebr%7C&abl=CS&pfx=0&fu=8320&bc=31&ifi=3&uci=a!3&btvi=2&fsb=1&xpc=lNwvtZKdzB&p=https%3A//www.pmnewsnigeria.com&dtd=2260

“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”.
