Post created on 10:35 am
As the indefinite strike embarked upon by the National Association of Resident Doctors enters day three, some medical practitioners in Delta State have lamented that the Federal Government and stakeholders in the health sectors are not doing enough to stop the reoccurring strikes by Doctors in Nigeria.
The Medical Director of the Tuberculosis and Referral Center Eku, Dr. Alexander Akpodiete, who spoke with Crown FM said even though medical doctors carry out humanitarian services they are human and their welfare must be a priority to the Federal and State Government. However, he gave kudos to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for living up to standard with medical Doctors in the state.
According to Dr. Akpodiete, not all medical doctors are on strike across the country.
Program Manager for Tuberculosis, Leprosy, Buruli Ulcer Control Program, Dr. Charles Apoki, speaking to Crown FM from Ughelli, said it is disappointing that during the 3rd wave of the Covid–19 virus, with the Delta Variant, government and Resident Doctors are still at loggerhead.
