Resident Doctors at the Ondo State University Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital (UNIMEDTH), Akure, have shut down hospitals and commenced a warning strike over unpaid salaries
The doctors, who marched to the office of the Chief Medical Director, said they were being owed four months’ salary.
The doctors began the strike on Sunday and threatened to embark on an indefinite strike next Monday.

Spokesman of the aggrieved doctors, Dr Taiwo Olagbe, appealed to well meaning Nigerians to prevail on the state government to settle their unpaid salaries.
Addressing the aggrieved doctors, the Physician in Charge of UNIMED,Akure , Dr Adesina Adetan, said government was doing everything to ensure that “your salary is moved into the mainstream system”.
He appealed to them to go back to work.
