MINISTER OF LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT URGES NEWLY-INDUCTED DOCTORS TO DESIST FROM PARTICIPATING IN PERSISTENT STRIKES.

Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has urged newly-inducted doctors to desist from partici­pating in persistent strikes, saying it is unethical for doctors to embark on strike.

The Minister gave the charge in a statement signed by the Deputy Director, Press, and Public Relations in the Ministry, Charles Akpan, in Abuja.

Ngige whose son, Dr. An­drew Ngige, is among the new inductees, urged the medical graduates to be of good be­haviour and uphold the high­est ethical standards while carrying out their duties.

He noted that the medical profession is a noble one and hence, they should abstain from any conduct which is capable of bringing their esteemed profession to disre­pute.
