The medical lecturers stated that they have been patriotically doing their work, which includes teaching, training, and conducting examinations for medical students throughout the period of the ongoing strike. They further reminded the ministers of their earlier letter in March 2022, where they had informed them of their resolve to remain at work, notwithstanding the strike declared by ASUU.

This they said was done in case the Federal Government decided to stop the salaries of ASUU members.
