The branch Chairman, Medical and Dental Consultant Association of Nigeria, Dr. Afolabi Salawu, disclosed this yesterday at a press conference.He said the resignation followed the inability of the hospital to pay the workers’ salaries.
 
He lamented that the institution, which was grossly under-staffed was losing its best hands, a situation that could have a negative effect on the state’s healthcare service delivery.
 
Other officials at the conference included the Chairman, Non-Academic Staff Union, Mr. Abiodun Lawal, Chairman, National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives, Mr. Bayo Ajayeoba, General Secretary, Association of Resident Doctors, Dr. Alabi Ayobami, Medical Health Workers Union of Nigerian Mrs. Serifat Akanbi and ARD President, Dr. Sebastine Oiwoh.
 
Salawu said: “Beside the fact that patients would no longer have assess to the professional service, the medical students would also loose the opportunity to learn in their specialised fields. The trend is also putting undue pressure on an already demoralised workforce.”
