Speaking to newsmen, the President Association of Resident Doctors, Doctor Wole Ayegbusi, said the indefinite strike became a last resort for the doctors across the country following the breakdown in negotiations with government and stakeholders in the health sector.
Doctor. Ayegbusi said issues of unpaid salaries, unjustified sack and poor welfare of resident doctors in government owned hospitals were among the demands by the resident doctors.
