Strike: Patients Stranded in Oyo Hospitals

1 Min Read

Patients in all the State Owned Hospitals in Oyo State were stranded on Monday as health workers in the state embarked on an indefinite strike.

According to a visit made to Jericho State Hospital, Ibadan by our corespondent, and other state owned facilities, patients were left unattended to as health workers on duty couldn’t attend to the need of all, as only the extreme emergency cases were given priority by the few health workers on duty.

Oduduwanews also learnt that the health workers embarked on strike due to the refusal of the State government to attend to their demands which include improved working conditions, welfare of health workers, and increment in their salaries to reflect the effect of the removal of fuel subsidy among others.
