Resident Doctors of Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu (OOUTH) have called off their indefinite strike.
The hospital’s chapter of National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) called off the one week old strike at an emergency meeting held in the teaching hospital.
The Association’s General Secretary, Doctor Oluwafemi Ajose, in a statement says the strike was called off to honour Governor Dapo Abiodun, for approving the immediate recruitment of more doctors, resident doctors and other health workers in the hospital.
The governor had issued a 48 hours deadline to the resident doctors to call off their strike or face the consequence.
The resident doctors had embarked on an indefinite strike on Monday last week, complaining of acute shortage of doctors in the hospital.
Hours later, the governor directed the immediate recruitment of more doctors and other health professionals to address the problems of shortage of manpower in the hospital.
