Ondo State medical doctors, under the umbrella of the National Association of Resident Doctors, the University of Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital, Ondo, chapter, on Monday, commenced an indefinite strike over unpaid salaries and other allowances.
The latest decision is a followup to a one-week warning strike embarked upon a week ago.
The union said government’s indifference to their demands left them with no option but to embark on a indefiite strike.
Speaking on the development, the Acting President of the National Association of Resident Doctors, UNIMEDTH Ondo, Dr Sanni Oriyomi, said his members could no longer work without being paid.
Oriyomi claimed that the government was still owing them four and a half months salaries, COVID-19 allowance, and other entitlements.
