Stike :UCH , other Resident doctors call off strike
The striking resident doctors in the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan and their counterparts in other Hospital nationwide have resumed work after their few days industrial strike action.
News Writers who visited the hospital on Wednesday in Ibadan, observed that the accident and emergency wards deserted during the strike were occupied by patients
The children emergency ward was also occupied as doctors were seen in large number attending to patients.
The strike by the doctors, which commenced on September 4, crippled activities in public hospitals across Nigeria.
The federal government had earlier said it had met many of the demands of the doctors, including payment of salary arrears.
Addressing journalists on the decision to suspend the strike, the Chairman of NARD, UCH, Ibadan chapter, Segun Olaopa, said “the decision was reached following appeals from the public that the doctors should give the federal government more time to meet their demands.”
Mr. Olaopa, however, said that there will be a review in two weeks time to determine how far the government had gone to honour their agreements.
