“Doctors, particularly resident doctors a good number of Doctors in Nigeria are been neglected for a very long time, their welfare has been treated with kid gloves and that is true no matter how much politics is being played about it.

“Not much importance has been attached to the welfare of the resident doctors in Nigeria and the challenge is that it is the common man is suffering for it. We are put in a situation where our privileged few in the country will always run away to seek health care.

“But then the common man in the street who does not have the resources to go elsewhere to seek health care will be tied down to this nation with dilapidated structures and with very slow pace of development and advancement in Health care technology, so the common man will suffer for it.

“Evil will not last for too long there will always be a refutal there will always be a reprisal attack. When people are oppressed or suppressed for too long they will respond definitely one day, the common man on the street will respond one day, the doctors too will respond one day’’ he said.

He, therefore, urged the government to accord priority to healthcare service in the country, insisting that not a reasonable amount is being devoted to healthcare service.
