Aregbesola Planning To Replace Striking Doctors With Traditional Healers, Witch

The People Democratic Party, PDP, Osun State chapter has alleged that the state Governor, Rauf Aregbesola intends to sack striking doctors and replace them with traditional healers and witch doctors.
A statement by the spokesman of the state chapter of the party, Diran Odeyemi on Sunday, said the technical sacking of the doctors was a blackmail and a wrong move by the state government.
Odeyemi said, “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.”
The state chapter of the opposition party also charged stakeholders to caution Aregbesola against acts that projected the state in bad light.
“It is truly depressing that a once shining light among states of the federation could be reduced to the least in every aspect that is noble in the space of five years,”
“Despite the fact that this and many actions of the present administration left sour taste in the mouth, all stakeholders in the affairs of Osun must not give up.
“They should rise up against the continued misdemeanor being dressed as governance in Osun state,” Odeyemi said
