Abuja, July 26 (Mediaage NG) – Doctors in West African nation, Nigeria, have embarked on what it termed “total and indefinite strike” for failure of the country’s leadership to address their bitterness.

The striking surgeons who make up the country’s largest percentage of doctors are known to disrupt healthcare services when they stage a walk out from medical duties, as it severely affects healthcare services in the county’s public hospitals.

Two of their demands include an immediate payment of all salaries and a new hazard allowance.

The Nigeria Medical Association revealed that at least 50 doctors leave the country weekly for other countries that offer better renumeration for hospital doctors.

Poor working conditions, coupled with bad pay and the rising cost of living are the main factors affecting Nigerian doctors and other civil servants.
