The Ogun State Government has replaced the striking doctors working at the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital COVID-19 Isolation Centre, with volunteer doctors.

Members of the Association of Resident Doctors (ARD) at the facility, situated in Sagamu, had on July 1, begun a strike.

This paper, however, reported how some doctors at the isolation centres joined the industrial action last week.

Some of the doctors’ complaints include non-implementation of the new minimum wage, hazard allowance, inappropriate remuneration, low entry-level and absence of a life insurance policy for its members.

According to the doctors, the alleged refusal of the state government to appropriately attend to previous warning letters had shown that the government was less concerned about their plight.

On Monday, Special Assistant to the Governor on public communications, Remmy Hassan, disclosed  that the striking doctors at the isolation centre had been replaced.

“They were replaced by volunteers. It is a stop-gap measure. We cannot stop the treatment at the isolation centre.

“They have the right to go on strike. Remember it is a national strike. We are doing our best and we just hope that it does not take too long,” he said in a telephone interview with reporter.

The Secretary, ARD, OOUTH, Tope Osundara, confirmed the replacement to Punch newspaper, adding that the doctors were hopeful that the government would call for a meeting this week.
