Ondo State House of Assembly on Thursday urged doctors on strike to respect the rule of law and return to work for the sake of the people.
The lawmakers while deliberating on the development on Thursday at plenary, expressed deep concern about the effects of the strike on the people.
The Speaker of the House, Bamidele Oleyelogun, noted that the industrial dispute had lasted for so long and there was a need to put an end to it.
He called for a tripartite meeting that would involve medical personnel, the executive, and the legislative arms with a view to fashion out an amicable solution to the lingering crisis.
Oleyelogun said that the strike had triggered mortality among patients who patronized quack doctors because they lacked the wherewithal to attend standard hospitals in view of the high charges.
The speaker appealed to relevant authorities to find an amicable solution to the industrial crisis which had triggered brain drain amongst medical personnel in the state
