The Medical and Dental Consultants
Association of Nigeria has condemned the
non-payment of salaries of doctors and
other workers at the Ladoke Akintola
University Teaching Hospital, Osogbo, Osun
The Chairman of MDCAN, LAUTECH branch,
Dr. Kassim Adebayo, and secretary, Dr.
Tokunbo Olajumoke, said this in a letter
written to Governor Rauf Aregbesola, a copy
of which was made available to our
correspondent in Osogbo on Friday.
The Speaker of the House of Assembly, Mr.
Najeem Salam, and the Head of Service, Mr.
Sunday Owoeye, and others were copied.

to comply with the directive. The MDCAN
said members of the association were not
on any strike now despite the salary issues
but they said the threat to sack other
hospital workers who were on strike was an

deductions from workers salaries even prior
to the non-payment of salaries.
“We condemn in strong terms the threat on

than their legitimate wages being owed by
the government. The directive forcing
unpaid hospital staff to resume work may
pose danger to effective delivery of health
care services and will be detrimental to the
health of the populace who are at the
