Doctors in a region of Nigerian have been threatening strikes because of non-implementation of their salary contracts, among other grievances. They are undergoing meetings & negotiations with the government, giving them 21 days to meet their demands. The chairman of the state's branch of the Nigerian Medical Association, Daiyabu Ibrahim, is urging "the federal and state governments to address the shortage of medical equipment in the country to boost health care delivery to the people".
This truly breaks my heart. The Nigerian government is notorious for abusing funding and revenue, and the people suffer because of it. Nigeria's lack of medical personnel and supply is one of the main reasons I am endeavoring to becoming a doctor.
Please pray for us ..
