Tunde Obe Speaks On Doctors’ Strike
Popular highlife singer, Tunde Obe has aired his view concerning the recent Doctor’s strike in Nigeria.
Almost two months ago, Nigerian doctors went on strike to protest the poor health service conditions in the country, including unpaid and poor allowances.
According to Obe, there was no just reason for Doctors’ downing tools in the first instance considering the present Ebola outbreak in the country.
“When ur country is suffering a medical emergency, Docs should not be on strike…”, he tweeted.
However, the strike has been called off today Sunday, Aug.24 following a meeting held on Saturday, Aug.23 with the Senate President, David Mark.
The body’s President, Kayode Obembe, told journalists the association’s delegates resolved to suspend the industrial action in the interest of the ongoing public health issues in the country (Ebola outbreak).
He said all Nigerian doctors are expected to report to work Monday, Aug.25.
Mr. Obembe said the delegates also resolved among others that the Federal Government has recalled all 16,000 suspended resident doctors without actions against them for downing tools.
Speaking further, Obe said he’s happy the doctors have called off their strike today, Sunday, Aug.24…
“… Thank God they’ve heeded sound advice & suspended d strike”.
