Normal medical and health care services have returned at the Federal Medical Centre Idi-Aba Abeokuta following the suspension of the strike action of the National Association of Resident Doctors.
The Resident Doctors had been on strike two months ago to press home their demands for improved working conditions and payment of some outstanding entitlements.
When PLATFORM TIMES visited the hospital premises on Wednesday, it was discovered that few patients who thronged the centre were attended to by both medical and health care practitioners.
The Emergency center of the hospital was filled to the brim with patients who were being attended to by doctors and health officials of the hospital.
The president of the association of Resident Doctors, of the branch, Dr Oluwabusi Adebiyi urged members of the public to make good use of the resumption period to get health care.
He added that the association only agreed to work for six weeks to which it is expected that the government meets its demands.
The Medical Director Prof Adewale Musa-Olomu who also monitored the resumption of duty by the doctors expressed satisfaction with the latest development.
