Doctors employed by Ogun State government have declared an indefinite strike action from today, Monday.
The doctors made the decision to embark on an industrial action known at a press conference addressed by the chairman of the Nigerian Medical Association, Dr Oladunni Adetola, in Abeokuta.
According to the association, the strike which will be restricted to Mondays and Tuesdays, is indefinite until the state government accede to their demands.
The listed demands include recruitment of more doctors, provision of drugs in hospital pharmacies, improved condition of service, and improvement of basic infrastructure at the state hospitals.
The association in particular lamented a situation where some general hospitals in the state have only one doctor covering them.
