Ogun Public Hospitals Paralysed Over Doctors' Strike

Public hospitals in Abeokuta, Ogun State have been largely paralysed as the national strike embarked on by the National Association of Residents Doctors (NARD) entered its second day.

It was observed that at both the Federal Medical Centre and the Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital, Abeokuta, resident doctors fully complied with the directive of their national association.

The chairperson of NARD at the Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital, Aro, Odubakun Kazeem, said patients in the facility were not being attended to by resident doctors.

He said the strike would continue until the government meets their demands.

“I can confirm to you that we are complying fully. The strike is avoidable because most of the issues have dragged on for long.

"We have always demanded that the right things be done but the government fails to do its own part,” Kazeem told our correspondent.

At the Federal Medical Centre, only consultants were attending to some patients with the sight of doctors rare in the wards.

There were fewer cars than usual at the parking lots of the FMC and OOUTH, an indication that many doctors did not report for work.

NARD national had declared a five-day warning strike.

The national strike which commenced on Wednesday, May 17, 2023, was called by resident doctors to press home their demands to the Federal Government to make the work environment conducive for medical practitioners.
