If by midnight on Sunday, June 19, our demands are not met, all the members of the National Association of Resident Doctors of Nigeria (NARD) association, including those exempted, would join the indefinite nationwide strike. Due to the failure of the government to address the demands of National Association of Resident Doctors of Nigeria (NARD), it has declared a total and indefinite strike.
