It Is Unethical For Doctors To Embark On Strike – Ngige

Chris Ngige, minister for labour and employment, says it is unethical for medical doctors to embark on strike.

This was disclosed in a statement on Sunday while speaking at the induction of six medical graduates of the University of Abuja (UniAbuja) into the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN).

The Minister revealed his son is also part of the newly inducted medical graduates, and warned that if doctors embark on strikes, people die.

While delivering his speech, Ngige said, “I am a medical doctor. One of you being inducted here is my second son. My first son is also a medical doctor. My daughter is also a medical doctor. By virtue of ethics, our oath as doctors is to save lives. That is our primary duty.

He warned that if doctors go on strike, people die. “That is the truth. Human life is irreplaceable. How do you bring back people who have died as a result of doctors not being at their duty posts?

He also warned that it is unethical for doctors to go on strike, citing it goes against the interest of the profession

“It is unethical for doctors to embark on strike. I have said it so many times in the past and I will continue to say it. doctors should not go on strike. Therefore, you should desist from going on strike in the interest of humanity and our noble profession,” he said.
