Its over two weeks since President Muhammadu Buhari left for the UK for routine medical check-up, while a APC chieftain, Asiwaju Tinubu was reported to have also undergone surgery in the same country. However, for many Nigerians who have no alternative, they would have to look up to the skies for whence their help may come.
As the strike called by the National Association of Resident Doctors, NARD, entered its eighth day, the striking doctors have called for the resignation or sack of the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Nigige, and the Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire.
The President of the NARD, Dr Uyilawa Okhuaihesuyi, who made the call on Monday, said those responsible for the strike should resign or be sacked since they cannot handle their responsibilities.
Uyilawa affirmed that resident doctors cannot be bullied, adding that those who are the cause of the strike should resign or be sacked since they cannot handle their responsibilities.
“I also want to ask Nigerians to ask them and tell them that those who are the cause of the strike that they have not done their work should rather resign or be sacked from the position they hold. Because if you cannot deliver you have no responsibility being there.
“The ministry of health, the ministry of labour, the MDCN registrar, Sanusi, they are the ones to be held responsible for the strike we are on,” he stated.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
