LAUTECH Doctors Announce Suspension of Work

The Ogbomoso chapter of the Medical and Dental Association of Nigeria (MDCAN), Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Teaching Hospital, has suspended its services. The Ogbomoso batch announced this on Monday via a statement; they noted that they had suspended all their services in the hospital due to poor service.

The Chairman, Dr. Ayobami Alabi, and Secretary, Dr. Taiwo Alatishe, signed this statement.

In a statement provided to journalists, the doctor said the decision was based on a parliamentary resolution and the expiration of an ultimatum. They decided after critical consideration of the situation, which they observed as providing no assurances.

He then appealed to the Oyo state government, the general public, traditional rulers, critical stakeholders and interest parties to come and rescue LAUTECH.

“The congress hereby resolves by this press release to intimate the public of the notice of withdrawal of our services beginning from 08:00 a.m. on Monday, May 8, following the expiration of our ultimatum.

“This is done to safeguard the hospital from total collapse and to reposition the hospital for better training, research, and services that the hospital is established to subserve.

“Delay and difficulty in payment of 2016 to 2017 salary arrears by the management and persistent failure of the management.

“The persistent inability of hospital management to employ doctors and other staff hinged on the excuse of no funds, has led to failure in expanding the scope of training and services”.
