Doctors in Lagos declared a three-day warning strike on Sunday for the state government’s failure to comply with their demands.
Doctors under the auspices of the Medical Guild are on strike over the disparity in pay between the federal and state doctors in Lagos, the COVID-19 Hazard Subsidy and MOU incentive subsidies approved by the Federal Government, the failure to pay doctors who work in the isolation center, as well as the unceremonious withdrawal of doctors from the isolation centers without resorting to their well-being.
Announcing this at a press conference in Lagos, shortly after a meeting with the state’s governor, Babatunde Sanwo-Olu, the guild’s president, Dr. Oluwajimi Sodipo, who said the strike will begin at 8 am on Monday and ends on Thursday 16, 2020, said Doctors in isolation centers are exempt from the strike.
