Akeredolu To Begin Payment Of Outstanding Salaries For Striking Doctors


The Ondo state government has disclosed that it will on Monday commence payment of outstanding salaries to its striking resident doctors.
The Commissioner for Health, Dr Wahab Adegbenro made the disclosure on Saturday in Akure, the state capital while reacting to the protest and strike embarked upon by the doctors.
The doctors with the UNIMED teaching hospital had embarked on an indefinite strike on Friday over unpaid salaries with a vow not to resume unless their demand was acceded to by government.
The doctors who staged a peaceful protest at the UNIMED complex in Akure, said they could no longer condone the non payment of their wages by government.
They lamented that the doctors were being owed between three and six month salaries depending on when they joined the service of the hospital.
In a reaction, the Health Commissioner said the doctors were new employees whose appointment process and documentation were still being perfected by government.
Adegbenro pointed out that medical services at the UNIMED teaching hospital complexes in Akure and Ondo were not affected by the Resident doctors’ strike as patients were being attended to by other doctors.
