The Minister made the comment while responding to questions surrounding Resident Doctors’ ongoing strike during a programme on Channels Television.
“We have made it clear to them that this government is the most sincere and serious government this country has ever had. His word is his bond,” Ehanire said.
“This government has a record of being sympathetic to people, of meeting its obligations and keeping to its promises.
“This government does things differently. This is a government that says its word and keeps to its words. We would not do anything to hurt you. We work in your interest.
“We are going through a very difficult time with other countries and this is quite clearly not the time to add more to our problems by deciding to go on strike.
“I am worried that we are probably the first and only country where doctors have decided to go on strike.”
