Adeyinka Owolabi, The President of the Association Of Resident Doctors at, Ladoke Akintola University of Technology Teaching Hospital has protested the sack of resident doctors in the hospital. The sack was connected to the lingering industrial crisis between the association and the management.
Owolabi said there were no efforts at resolving the impasse, contrary to information making the rounds.
He called on all Nigerians to intervene in the lingering industrial crisis between it and the Osun State government.
The resident doctors at the Hospital have been on strike for more than seven months over issues relating to unpaid salaries and other welfare packages.
Owolabi urged President Muhammadu Buhari to prevail on the state governor, Rauf Aregbesola, to accede to their demands to avoid the collapse of health care delivery in the state.
He said the state government and their representative have taken to blackmail, intimidation and victimisation of their members.
Owolabi maintained that the ongoing strike by the resident doctors would continue until all pending issues were resolved.
He also claimed that every attempt made within and outside the state to resolve the issues had failed.
