The Doctors had on June 1 declared an indefinite strike over the state’s government neglect of their agitations.

The association however exempted doctors working at the COVID-19 isolation centre from the strike.

But in a statement on Wednesday, Popoola Abiodun, president of the association, and Osundara Tope, the general secretary, said a decision has been taken to withdraw the services of doctors from the COVID-19 treatment centre due to the “lack of commitment by the state government”.

“Our members are no longer at ease with the disposition of the government. Our matters are not hard rocks difficult for Ogun State government to deliquesce,” Abiodun said.

“Since the government has chosen to simply rub the issues without any form of real commitment, our members working at the COVID–19 Isolation Centre will henceforth join the Industrial action.

“We expect the government not to dethrone reasoning or shirk from responsibility expected of a considerate, sincere and truthful government.

“We call on Ogun State government not to leave us up a creek without a paddle. Our service to the people should not be abridged by the ineptitude of the government. We work for the common good and sound health of the people of Ogun State”.
