UNIOSUN Doctors Won't Join Nationwide Strike - Osun Government

The Osun State Government has approved with immediate effect the payment of hazard allowance for clinical and non-clinical workers in the service of the state teaching hospital.

This is as it has announced that resident doctors of the Osun State University Teaching Hospital will not be joining the ongoing national strike embarked upon by the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD).

In a statement by the spokesperson to the governor, Olawale Rasheed, it was revealed that this was the outcome of a close door meeting with Governor Ademola Adeleke where the 12 years demands of the doctors were approved by the state Governor.

At the meeting attended by the leadership of the medical union and management of the teaching hospital,

"The Governor also approved payment of a percentage of residency training allowance for residency doctors for the same hospital on an annual basis.

"Reacting to the presentation by the President of the medical union, Dr John Ojo, Governor Adeleke further directed that all other operational issues raised by the union should be looked into with immediate effect.

"He however charged the medical workers to reciprocate the gesture of the state government by re-dedicating themselves to excellent service delivery."
