National Association of Government General Medical and Dental Practitioners (NAGGMDP) Ondo State chapter have started a two week warning strike following alleged lackadaisical attitude of state government to their welfare.

The doctors alleged that the government had not only failed to pay their salaries arrears for some months but also failed to resolve the issue of exodus of doctors and other health workers among other issues.

The association stated this in a letter sent to the state Governor, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu.

Gatekeeper News got a copy of the letter, which was signed by the state Chairman and Secretary of NAGGMDP, Dr Roland Arohunmolase, and Dr. Richard Obe respectively.

The association expressed hope that Governor Akeredolu would do the needful by addressing demands as contained in the letter.

This development came few days after the state chapter of the Nigeria Medical Association urged the government to resolve the issue of welfare of doctors in the state to curb the exodus.
