Lagos Doctors Call-Off 3-Day Warning Strike.

The Chairman Medical Guild Representative Council, Dr. Oluwajimi Sodipo announced on Wednesday evening that medical doctors in Lagos State have suspended the three-day warning strike they started on Monday, July 13, 2020.

Dr. Sodipo in a statement revealed that the Doctors have agreed to return to work on Thursday, following a virtual meeting with the state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu; Oba of Lagos, HRM Oba Rilwan Akinolu, and other stakeholders.

The statement read as follows;

“The 3 days warning strike should be suspended and work resume by 8am on Thursday 16th July, 2020.

The officers committee should continue to engage relevant government agencies on all the issues that precipitated the strike action.

The officers committee should call for congress to update on the progress of negotiations.

The government should demonstrate sincerity and commitment during the negotiation in order to avert unnecessary and preventable crisis in the health sector of Lagos state.

The doctors had on Monday embarked on a warning strike over wage disparity between the federal government doctors and state, non-payment of hazard allowance, disengagement of doctors at the isolation centres and two months salary arrears.
