Aregbesola Slams Striking Doctors, Describes Them As ‘Selfish’


Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State has described the action of the striking doctors in the state as selfish.

The Governor stated this yesterday while delivering an address titled: “To the improved health of the People” at the commissioning of new equipment for Boripe Local Government Health Centres at Boripe Local Government Secretariat in Iragbiji.

He admonished the striking doctors to recognise that the state was in a very special time of serious economic challenge and be willing to sacrifice like every other worker in the state who are always at their duty post despite not being paid their full salaries.

Aregbesola said the government in spite of the great financial challenges has given the welfare of the people priority attention, saying it is high time that all realised that the state is in a special period where sacrifices must be made.

“There are however some of our health workers at the state level who think only of themselves, who do not care a hoot whatever happens to the rest of us,” he said.
