Striking medical doctors in the country have been urged to end their ongoing industrial action, especially at a time terrorists are on the prowl in some parts of the country.
This call was made by Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State on Friday while addressing journalists in the state at Government House Asaba.
He urged them to consider the plight Nigerians are going through, especially those who have fallen victim of terrorists’ activities.
“We appeal to the striking doctors to go back to work. This is not the best of time for our doctors to embark on strike because of the insecurity in the country. If our children in the north are denied access to school and also deny them access to health it means that the insurgents are winning the war,” Uduaghan pleaded.
He said that the federal government was doing its best to have all issues resolved soon, adding that, it would be better if they could go back to their duty posts to save those who are in need of medical attention while the ongoing lasts.
