The three-day warning strike by Association of Resident Doctors has entered its second day on Tuesday.
A visit to the University of Uyo Teaching Hospital, Akwa Ibom State, South-South Nigeria, by Channels Television crew confirmed that while other medical workers were busy carrying out their normal duties, no resident doctor was on duty.
The chairman, Association of Resident Doctors in Akwa Ibom State, Dr. Dolapo Shittu, listed his association’s demands to include adequate training of its members, review of their allowances by government, relativity specialisation and the need to redress the victimisation of its members at Federal Medical Centre, Owerri.
Dr. Shittu assured Nigerians that their decision was in the best interest of the country.
According to Shittu, a total and indefinite strike is scheduled to commence on July 1 if the issues were not resolved before then.
