Medical Doctors in the South West Zone of the country have threatened to embark on strike if the Osun State Government failed to address the plight of their colleagues within two weeks.
Dr. Adenike Odewabi, the Chairman of the South West caucus of Nigeria Medical Association, said this at a press conference in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
According to Odewabi, doctors in the zone will carry out “systematic solidarity action” and public protests in the six states of the zone in solidarity with their colleagues.
She said doctors in the public service in Osun State have not been paid salary for six months.
She said: “We the entire South West Caucus of the NMA have observed the recalcitrant posture of the government of Osun, being supervised by Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.
“We will not hesitate to invoke all that is necessary within the ambit of the law to defend our colleagues in the State of Osun in challenging the affront on our noble
profession and innocent citizens of the state.”
