Resident Nigerian Doctors’ll Account For Any Death During Strike – Senate Committee

Chairman, Senate Committee on Health, Senator Ibrahim Oloriegbe, yesterday appealed to the striking resident doctors to return to work, saying “any single soul that dies as a result of the strike is in the hands of the doctors.”

He spoke in Abuja at a public hearing on ‘Federal Medical Centre, Mubi, Adamawa State (Establishment) Bill, 2021’.

Oloriegbe said the National Assembly was surprised that the resident doctors went on strike after meeting with their leadership to shelve the plan.

“I’m a doctor myself. We took oath to serve and save life. On no circumstance should we through our action endanger any life to be lost due to our personal interests.

“We know as doctors, we’ve to take care of our welfare, but we’ve taken an oath to serve.

“I’m appealing to them that we should go back to work while negotiations and discussions on outstanding issues will go on,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Federal Government will again meet with the striking resident doctors today.
