Reports reaching us indicates that Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State may striking doctors in the State by next week.
The Governor dropped the hint at the 75th birthday anniversary of the founding President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Hassan Sunmonu, where he lamented and expressed shock that despite his efforts to persuade the doctors, who commenced the ongoing strike on September 28, 2015, they had remained adamant and continued on their industrial action.
“To my dismay, they stuck to their guns. But you are either in or out. We have decided to use the civil service rule”.
“The Head of Service will implement that as from Monday. Head of Service, it is over to you.”
The Permanent Secretary of the Hospitals Management Board, Mrs. Omolara Ajayi, had while addressing journalists, appealed to the doctors to resume work in the interest of the masses.
“I want to appeal to them to resume in the interest of the masses, people who do not have an alternative. A life that is lost is lost forever.”
At the time of this report, the striking doctors have not returned to work.
