The doctors are urging the government to accept their demands or they would embark on a warning strike to commence January 17, 2017.

They explained that the strike is aimed at pressing home their demands for payment of salaries and step up of working conditions.

Channels TV reports that the doctors held a solemn demonstration carrying placards across the premises of the teaching hospital.

They were led by their president, Alexander Ige, who revealed that the Federal Government has not paid their two months’ salary of September and October 2016.
