COOUTH doctors end strike, lament lower pay
Medical and Dental Consultants Association of Nigeria (MDCAN), Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital (COOUTH), Amaku, Awka Branch, has resumed work after one week warning strike.
They lamented lower pay compared with their counterparts in federal institutions, warning: “We can no longer cope with the current situation where the least qualified medical doctor (house officer) in federal institutions earn better than the most qualified medical doctors (consultants/professors) in COOUTH.”
A statement signed by its Chairman, Dr. Chukwudi Okani and Secretary, Dr. Obiora Ejiofor, the association urged its members to resume duty.
