Resident Doctors at the Ondo State University Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital (UNIMEDTH), Akure, have begun a warning strike over unpaid salaries
The doctors, who marched to the office of the Chief Medical Director, said they were being owed four months’ salary.

Spokesman of the aggrieved doctors, Dr Taiwo Olagbe, appealed to well meaning Nigerians to prevail on the state government to settle their unpaid salaries.
Addressing the aggrieved doctors, the Physician in Charge of UNIMED,Akure , Dr Adesina Adetan, said government was doing everything to ensure that their salary was moved into the mainstream system.
Dr Adetan appealed to the striking doctors to go back to work.
