AREGBESOLA ACCUSED OF PLOTTING TO REPLACE SACKED DOCTORS WITH NATIVE DOCTORS

Osun state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has accused the governor of the state, Rauf Aregbesola, of planning to replace sacked medical doctors with their native doctor counterparts.

The state government had on Friday at a press conference announced that doctors in the employ of the state have lost their jobs following their refusal to call off the strike they embarked on since April 2, 2015.

Reacting to the government’s announcement in a statement issued in Osogbo by its spokesperson, Prince Diran Odeyemi, the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) alleged that Gov. Aregbesola has preference for traditional medicine as against orthodox medicine, and following the sack of medical doctors in the employ of the state, the governor is planning to engage the services of native doctors.

The statement reads: “We have been authoritatively informed that Governor Aregbesola’s intention is to replace sacked medical doctors with native doctors and traditional healers because of his personal belief in tradition he called “Isese”.

“Now that all the ill-conceived measures to cow the doctors have failed and the Plan “B” of replacing them with new intakes had been frustrated by the Nigeria Medical Association, NMA, Governor Aregbesola, wants to experiment with the use of native doctors.

“Governor Aregbesola has a rich history of odd actions all in a bid to be “unique”. If a governor could unilaterally change the education system in Osun from the 6-3-3-4 operating across the country to 4-6-3 by recategorising primary and secondary schools in the state to Elementary, Middle and High Schools, then his plans to replace orthodox medical doctors with native doctors in this modern age cannot be dismissed with a wave of hand”.
