Association of Medical and Dental Officers of Oyo State (AMDO) on Tuesday handed down indefinite strike notice to the Oyo State Government.
The association in a statement issued at the end of its emergency meeting in Ibadan stressed that to avoid the looming indefinite strike, the state government should implement their demands on or before July 31.
In the statement jointly signed by the association’s Chairman, Ajibolu Adeniran Oke and Ebunoluwa Mojisola Adeoye , General Secretary pointed out that it resolved into suspending its proposed warning strike scheduled to have commenced after the expiration of its 21 days ultimatum to the state government on Monday 6th July 2020.
“We are patiently waiting for the implementation of our demands as requested on or before Friday 31st July, 2020 after which we can no longer guarantee industrial harmony as we may likely embark on an indefinite strike action until all our demands are met”, it said
AMDO maintained that “the proposed warning strike is suspended to honour his Excellency, the Governor of Oyo State Engineer Seyi Makinde in recognition of his intervening at a crucial period and for constituting a negotiating committee to look into the various demands presented by our association. We appeal that he uses his good office to expedite the implementation of these demands”
AMDO added, “we wish to reassure the good people of Oyo State and the entire populace that Medical Doctors in the service of the Pace Setter State are committed to ensuring qualitative and prompt services to the teaming populace and should please appeal to the Government to do the needful on time.”
