I am sorry but there is no excuse for what these doctors have done. No excuse whatsoever. You mean they will stay home this Christmas season eating rice happily ?... Unbelievable , a noble profession being turned into rubbish. Come and try that in a developed country and see how you will immediately get struck off the medial practice .... Rubbish... There should have at least been a skeletal service with maybe 60% of doctors still working. In fact I am short of words

Lord guide our leaders right. Issues like this bothers me a lot,many lives will be lost bcos not everyone can afford the private hospital coupled with d fact that most of them don't have d necceSsay equipment and manpower which make them refer patients to government hospitals. God these pple needs Your almighty touch.

At Anonymous #1 you're crazy!!! You too go and work their job and don't get paid. Nonsense. freaking double standards! oath my ass! like you all can take that nonsense. The oath said do no arm to your patient, not work without pay. That's why the medical practice in that country is substandard but yet you raise millions to go get service in other countries. 3rd world metality oshi.

Sarah Pius said...

I completely agree with you. I don't understand why Doctors will embark on this.
Doctors on strike, it doesn't even sound right almost like saying journalists are on strike. Its inane

Anonymous said...

People of Nigeria.. instead of you to go cry to the government to give this people what they deserve, you're abusing the poor doctors that have suffered blood and sacrificed their whole youth!!! this is the problem with nigeria. If it is that easy, and it's all about an oath.. You should all go back and become doctors then.

and the stupid people saying the oath to save lives at all cost. which oath are you talking about.

This is the Oath!!!
To consider dear to me, as my parents, him who taught me this art; to live in common with him and, if necessary, to share my goods with him; To look upon his children as my own brothers, to teach them this art; and that by my teaching, I will impart a knowledge of this art to my own sons, and to my teacher's sons, and to disciples bound by an indenture and oath according to the medical laws, and no others.

I will prescribe regimens for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone.

I will give no deadly medicine to any one if asked, nor suggest any such counsel; and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion.

But I will preserve the purity of my life and my arts.

I will not cut for stone, even for patients in whom the disease is manifest; I will leave this operation to be performed by practitioners, specialists in this art.

In every house where I come I will enter only for the good of my patients, keeping myself far from all intentional ill-doing and all seduction and especially from the pleasures of love with women or men, be they free or slaves.

All that may come to my knowledge in the exercise of my profession or in daily commerce with men, which ought not to be spread abroad, I will keep secret and will never reveal.

If I keep this oath faithfully, may I enjoy my life and practise my art, respected by all humanity and in all times; but if I swerve from it or violate it, may the reverse be my life.

For you to collect anything from the Fed Gov't, it's either you strike like university teachers by refusing to work or you strike like the Under -17 Golden eaglets by scoring goals and winning tournaments cos 'strike' seems to be the only language the Fed Gov't understands. I just hope the Medical practitioners will be both tolerant and considerate for the sake of the sick and accident victims especially during the yuletide.

Anonymous said...

In most developed countries doctors are not permitted to go on strike however they are at least paid. God help naija, only in Nigeria will doctors be expected to work with no pay while the politicians engorge themselves with nigeria's money. They can't be bothered to implement a health care service that benefits the masses and actually exists. But instead the facilities are poor in government hospitals, doctors expected to work in such depleted circumstances. No wonder doctors are fed up and striking.

Anonymous said...

First I must warn Linda not to eat dis comment as she always does to me. Second, Anon 5:38, I want to answer u plainly and truthfully. Some of the doctors can't actually afford a feast of rice and goat meat and chicken and wine as u ignorantly think, some of them are also sick, yes sick with worry of January school fees, what a consultant earns here is what a ward nursing assistant earns in ur so called developed world yet they are not as diligent as ours, even in private hospitals! It is not asking for too much when one works and asks for a decent piece of meal. I am a Nigerian woman, living in ur so called developed world and married to a medical doctor, I have my fair share of testing of both waters and I tell u honestly, you are attacking the wrong person! Talk to ur Govt. Not the doctors, they too are 'sick' and needs govt healing

Anonymous said...

A developed country will not watch its health sector degenerate,its doctors underpaid and overworked,and its leaders running abroad to treat hiccups.when the life of Nigerians are worthless to the Government and you expect Doctors to work "miracles" despite the gross negligence.Anyway Myopic Imbecile and drop-outs like you don't know doctors are humans too.

I find it very heart breaking when doctors go on strike, agreed you have every right to demand for your wages, but then again you have taken an oath to save lives, and seriously going on strike is clearly not the best. Please dear government answer them, cause a lot of innocent people will suffer for nothing. God bless Nigeria my country. I still believe one day we will get it right.

The strike is not necessary.Nigerians are the problem nigeria is facing now.Everyone want to fill up his or her pockets at the detriment of the poor. Even when the money is given to them to improve the health sector they embezzle and equip their private hospitals.let's be realistic here,doctors are well paid irrespective of the fact that there is high negligence to their duties and malpractices.May God help us all.I pray God heals the sick especially during this period,he is still the great healer.

Since they are on strike now, the people you claim that does the work in the hospitals should start doing the work. Unnecessary beef.

The major reason why the doctors are on strike selfish and out of jealousy of other medical workers. Imagine going on strike because the national industrial court ruled that other health workers should continue skipping from step 10 to step 12. That is why they are on strike, for the NIC to reverse the judgement as if it affects them in any way. This is pure jealousy strike! Ask them what they are agitating for? Its not as if poor funding of the health sector affects them alone. It affects everybody in the medical team, from the nurses down to the othe team members, yet they are still working especially this xmas period.when others went on strike, they called them names and urged their members to remain on duty when they knew well they could not do a thing in the hospital. Now the table has turned and they want public sympathy by posting pictures here and there. Please, other health care teams are working including the consultants, so the effect is not greatly felt, only the work load has increased for others.

NMA threatened to go on strike should FG accept the demands of JOHESU after they won the court case, now they are on strike purely out of selfishness. They want people to feel the effect by going on strike yuletide period and immediately after ASUU called off theirs, and this is a pure sign of wickedness. This strike is not about salary! as somebody said the can't work without payment. Ask them what it is all about and you all will be surprised. The leadership of NMA have lost focus and everything is now about politics. Most doctors don't even know the reason for the strike and some who know are disappointed. When JOHESU went on strike, they directed only their members in federal hosps to reduce the hardship on the masses but this NMA directed both federal and state hospitals which is babaric. Though the FG is not serious about the health sector, but the individuals should do their own part first. This is really pathetic. NMA is seriously loosing public sympathy and it is really a shame

If you are so unenlightened you don't need to expose yourself publicly. Have you been to teaching hospitals to see how Drs slave away and risk their lives for the peanuts they are paid. No developed country would pay or treat their Drs for the sacrifices they make like this country does. In Nigeria, Drs don't have a life in teaching hospitals so don't make statements you know nothing about.

Before you type stuff or open your mouth to say things, make enquiries, research, don't be so narrow minded and limit yourself to LIB. Find out why Drs are on strike. It's not for increment, it's being sidelined by the government while other civil servants are favored. I won't go into detail cos you have a brain, fingers and eyes and can check it up on Google. And FYI the oath we took which was declared by Hippocrates, the father of Medicine was made with the condition that the society would give him his due and good things of life, again Google it and educate yourself. Imagine a Dr not being paid his salary for 3 mths and being the sole provider in his home, using his car to transport passengers for money. Where in any developed country do you see that? Like I said, I won't go into details with examples, just take a day off and spend it in a teaching hospital then you'll not only ask Drs to strike, you'll beg them to protest for the inhumane conditions they are subjected to. Cheers

In developed countries, doctors, nurses, fire fighters, police men n women, emergency services are classified as 'essential services', so dey can NEVER go on strike...at least here in canada...having said that, they are well paid and treated with the highest level of respect and dignity...so much so that pple dream of becoming policemen n fire fighters...they save pples lives, u can bring a dead man back to life..even as d govt consider the doctor's families, Doctors shld consider another line of action...like someone suggested skeletal service but not all going on strike....

This regime has recorded an unprecedented number of strike actions by several union bodies. When the issues come up, we usually find out that the government did not live up to an earlier agreed deal. This government is insincere and I guess these guys know that so l kinda don't blame them but I think emergency services should still go on.

The elephant in the room is the jumbo pay of the NASS members. ASUU was the beginning. Every sector wants their share of the national booty. Took them this long to figure out.
The docs were just waiting to see how successful ASUU will be.
Until we put the legislators salary on the table, this will continue.

Medical practice else where isn't better than in Nigeria! The Nigerian doctor strive to use d almost non existing resources to treat but d other countries being cited are provided for till their teeth drops yet they are lazy! A consultant in Nigeria receives same salary with a ward assisting nurse in Europe or US. Y won't dey go on strike when most if them are worried sick of how to meet January school fees payment for their kids? Nigerians, Doctors are sick too! Plz talk to ur leaders not the doctors.

This Strike is because they dont want Lab Scientists, Nurses and other allied health fields to be directors in their own field!. this is just self serving...i wonder why this govt still condones a group of proud folks on an ego trip to hold the health of this country to ransome. its sad.!!!. an oath was taken by these mfs to save lives first. all they care abt is their pockects and egos. if they feel they are not well compensated... they should go to some other place andd get better compensation... why would a doctor fight others that work with him for the benefit of the patient?. why!!!. every little thing, they want to strike...and yet they have private clinics thaat corner these same pple that govt hospitals have forcefully discharged!. too bad. i pray for the sick to be healed!,.

Please cut them some slack, let them fight for better work and living standards.

Anon 7.36 mrs married to a doctor, anon 10.39 miss people should go to private hospitals, anon 7.40 miss or mr imbecile and drop out... You lot need to get your thinking changed big time. First if all I reject all your insults and they have bounced back to you all a hundred fold. I do not use foul language no matter what. That would be too low. Secondly I said there should be a skeletal service in place for emergencies. Would you all rather have people die like chickens? How sad you all are. Not everyone can afford private care and private care is not usually the best anyways. You just do not bring to halt services for the masses and the poor and have them die just like that. And for your information, I lost my dearest relative in one of these government hospitals, we knew he may die however if the so called doctors even put a smile on their faces and showed abit of concern not wanting to get 2000 naira of us, it would have helped relieve the pain abit. A consultant even dropped someone's case notes and walked off with the student doctors after seeing another patient. I had to go and pick the notes and rush over to them. You should have seen the look the consultant gave me.... Meanwhile the student doctors were texting.... They are not all bad but long and short of it is you took an oat to care. I pray the govt pay you your dues. And I pray you change you attitudes towards humans.

Mcheww... If you haven't spent 6 years of your life in medical school (minus assu strike o) only to graduate and be underpaid by the government then don't talk abegi. Sometimes doctors even use their cars and money to support and help patients themselves while they have families to feed at home.. Its bad enough that they come home late at night and barely have any family time, now they're not even getting paid for it on top. You don't understand what doctors go through here in Nigeria, to watch your patients die not because they can't be saved but cos you don't have any means or facilities to save them. and concerning the 2000naira matter its a govt hospital not a charity organization, if you treat a patient without billing them the money goes out of your already menial salary, and considering the rate of poverty in Nigeria ..imagine giving out 2000 naira to about 50 patients a. Month, how would you live? . You don't understand what doctors realy go tru, u can only sit behind your laptop and comment, I've lived with a doctor for 17 years so I know what it is they're fighting for..but even upon this strike patients come to our house and still he consults and prescribes drugs for them for free. Some doctors are still on call for emergency cases sef..abeggi just chill if you dunno what to say.. You're attacking the wrong ppl, face your government!

What are these dense doctors saying,from all indications u are all bloody houseofficers,that barely know the difference btwn a syringe and an IV cannula..Anybody that works in a hospital,or has been a patient in a one,will rightly tell you that nurses strike have a greater effect on the patients,and d hospital as a whole.There's usually a total shutdown,I mean no single patients on the wards or at most one serious case that probbly refused to go, but wen doctors are on strike, u can still see up to 9 ore more patients on the ward even tho they might have been discharged,they don't leave, becos they still have nurses attending to them!

The 2 'anonyMOUSES' that replied,u both actually sound like retards,from terrible spellings to wrong use of punctuations and tenses, and to think that u are what our universities churn out as graduates of medicine. Pathetic!

I am so sad to read about this incident. I am also a doctor and I hate such activities of doctors which effects other people badly.
