Rivers doctors to begin indefinite strike January 9 2017

Medical doctors in Rivers State have threatened to embark on strike should the state government fail to accede to their demands on the issue of poor health facilities and inadequate manpower.

The doctors, who spoke under the auspices of the National Association of Government Medical and Dental Practitioners in Rivers State said they would down tools from January 9, 2017 if issues of rot in government health centres, hospitals and inadequate manpower were not addressed.

Speaking with newsmen in Obia/Akpor, the Chairman of the association, Dr. Sofiri Peterside, described the proposed strike as the last option should the current administration in the state fail to look into the challenges affecting the operation of the medical service in the state.
