Nigerian medical doctors are preparing to commence nationwide strike next week, June 15.
According to the President of the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD), Dr Aliyu Sokomba, the doctors took the painful decision following the inability of the government to meet its demands.
He reportedly told Saharareporters.com that-“It is important that you make alternative arrangements for the care of the patients as the strike shall be total and indefinite. No service of any kind, be it emergency, care at COVID-19 isolation and treatment centres shall be exempted. We sympathize with the patients and Nigerian populace.”
