There was tension as members of the staff of the Abeokuta General Hospital, Ogun state on Tuesday morning, June 28, locked the entrance gate of the hospital, preventing doctors and patients from entering the premises.
The aggrieved workers joined other state workers to begin an indefinite strike action, over claims that the state government has refused to pay them their 21-month salary deductions. They embarked on the strike today after going through a 7-days warning strike.
The workers are also demanding a review of the state pension laws and process as well as access to loans such as car and housing loans.
Videos and photos shared online showed sick patients brought to the hospital lying on the ground outside the hospital.
