Pledges to help injured Nigerians

Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has called on federal and state governments to ensure smooth movement and safety of doctors and other health workers,
especially as many states are declaring curfew.

In a statement in Abuja, president of the association, Dr Uyilawa Okhuaihesuyi, expressed concern over the unrest in the country and called on President Muhammadu
Buhari and the National Assembly to address the legitimate demands of the protesters.


He said: “We join all men of good value to condemn the recent killing of unarmed, innocent Nigerians. We demand that the military be removed from our streets and the police be refrained from shooting at unarmed citizens; rather they should protect the innocent citizens who have the constitutional right to protest.

“We categorically state that we stand with other Nigerians on the #EndSARS campaign.

Doctors have also been at the receiving end of this dastardly act by members of the defunct Special Antirobbery Squad (SARS).”
