By Musa Adeniyi, Osogbo

Amidst the ongoing strike action embarked upon by resident Doctors in the country, the federal government of Nigeria has been admonished to tread softly on its treat to invoke no work,no pay rule.

Former chairman, house committee on health and human services and one time chairman governing board, LAUTECH Teaching Hospital Ogbomoso,Dr Muiwa Oladimeji made this admonition on a radio program in Osogbo at the weekend.

According to him, the threat of no work,no pay will only aggravate the crisis in our system.

“The treat will make more Doctors and other health workers to emigrate and the citizens will suffer”.He said.

The Russia trained physician described the condition of service in the hospitals as abysmally rotten.

He urged the Nigerian government to make fund available to strengthen Hospitals and provide better salary and allowance for the health workers as demanded by the striking doctors.

Another participant on the program, Dr.Omotoso Eluyemi from Student Affairs Department, Federal Poly,Ede,Osun state affirmed that the demands of the doctors are very reasonable.

He enjoined the government to find peaceful ways of addressing those issues in the interest of masses of Nigerians who cannot afford to go abroad for medical care.
