    ‘Why resident doctors down tool in Ogun’

    By Precious Obongawan
    Resident doctors in government hospitals in Ogun state, south-west Nigeria, Monday explained why they decided to embark on indefinite strike.

    Dr Oladunni Adetola, chairman, Nigerian Medical Association told journalists in Abeokuta, Ogun state, that the state government has failed to meet their demands, due to the lackadaisical attitude of the government towards health matters.

     His words: “Imagine a general hospital having only a doctor covering it. Most of our hospitals have less than half of the personnel they had about seven to eight years ago”.
    According to him, “the laboratories are not equipped and common essential drugs are not available at the pharmacies, thereby pushing the citizens to buy substandard drugs”
