Prof. Issac Adewole has said the Federal Government is doing every possible to end the ongoing indefinite nationwide strike by Joint Helath Sector Union (JOHESU).
The minister said that the Federal Government was not sleeping in ensuring that the strike was called off as soon as possible.
“The JOHESU strike will soon be over. The Federal Government is doing everything possible to bring the strike to an end,” Adewole said.
Dr Tokunbo Olajumoke, the Osun NMA Chairman, made the allegation at a news conference in Osogbo on Saturday.
Olajumoke, who noted that the doctors were ready to work and provide proper healthcare services to patients, said that JOHESU members were not allowing them to perform their duties.
He said JOHESU members in the hospital locked up critical facilities that the doctors needed to work with in order to frustrate the doctors.
Olajumoke, however, said that doctors would continue to do their jobs and render healthcare services to the people regardless of the JOHESU strike.
He cautioned the striking JOHESU members to desist from intimidating doctors, adding that the striking JOHESU members were desperate to create the impression that it was impossible for the hospital to exist without them.
He urged the management of the hospital to provide adequate security for the doctors in the hospital to enable them do their jobs.
