Doctors embark on indefinite strike in Ondo
On Monday Doctors in Ondo State began indefinite strike following the non-payment of their salaries by the State Government.
During an emergency meeting in Akure, the state capital, the aggrieved doctors, under the aegis of Association of Resident Doctors of Nigeria at the University of Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital, UNIMEDTH expressed their disappointment that the government has continued to turn deaf ears to their demands.
According to the doctors, the industrial action became imperative due to the failure of the state government to address their demands.
The doctors lamented that they were being owed four months salary arrears by the state government amid the harsh economic situation in the country.
Recall that last week the doctors embarked on a seven-day warning strike to call government’s attention to their plights.
