"Your strike is illegal!!"- FMOH to resident doctors

The Federal Ministry of Health  (FMOH) sent an ominous letter to all CMDs about the ongoing Resident doctors' strike.
.
Excerpts read: "Health is an essential service. Therefore any strike in the health sector is illegal."
.

"No work, no pay subsists. In this regard, you are directed to ensure strict enforcement of this policy on any group of employee in your institution."
.
"Provide clinical services by all means necessary including employment of locum staff."
.
What are your thoughts on the FMOH letter?
