Medical Doctors who are working at the COVID-19 isolation centre at the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu, Ogun State, have joined other doctors in the ongoing industrial action.
Information gathered revealed that the doctors were nowhere to be found following the directive by the Association of Resident Doctors, OOUTH, Sagamu directing them to leave their duty posts at the isolation centre and embark on the indefinite strike.
The development was confirmed by the Association President, Dr Popoola Mutiu and the secretary, Dr Osundara Tope, in a statement released on Wednesday.
The ARD which comprises Resident Doctors, Medical Officers and House Officers under the national body of NARD had begun an indefinite strike since July 1 but exempted its members at the isolation centre from the strike.
The Association noted that it changed its decision and asked its members at the isolation centre to protest against the alleged maltreatment of its members by the government.
