The minister of Health Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu on Monday criticised the resident doctors over their ongoing strike saying their strike is uncalled for.

Speaking to Journalists in Abuja, the minister said “the strike by Resident Doctors was uncalled for because we were already handling the issues after our meeting with the Nigerian Medical Association.”

The minister also added that he understands that “some of the issues have not been resolved but I think we can do well and exercise some patience before going on strike because when we go on strike, peoples lives are involved.”

Meanwhile, a statement issued by the head of media in the Ministry of Labour, Mr. Samuel Olowookere says the residents’ doctors have agreed to call off their ongoing strike “after a protracted meeting which lasted for over fourteen hours.”

According to the statement, a high-powered committee to be chaired by the health minister has been put in place to address the demands of doctors.
