Aigbovo said the doctors were embarking on the strike because they had not been paid their salary for two months.
He said doctors have suffered financial instability due to non-payment of salaries after repeated warnings and ultimatum to the government.
Aigbovo added that other affected health workers will join the strike within 48 hours if their demands are not met.
A similar action was taken by resident doctors at Federal Medical Centre, Jabi, Abuja. They embarked on a warning strike, January 13, 2020, over non-payment of shortfalls in their salaries.
Dr Adejo Arome, the President of the association at the hospital, said they went on strike because money meant for payment of the salary shortfall had been paid into the hospital account in December 2019 but was not disbursed.
