Reading Time: < 1 minute

SWITZERLAND, JULY 13 – Doctors working for the Lagos State government, under the aegis of the Medical Guild, have begun a three-day warning strike, beginning from Monday, over issues of welfare and safety

The strike, which would run till July 16, would exempt members working in the state’s COVID-19 isolation centres.

Chairman of the Guild, Dr. Oluwajimi Sodipo, who addressed reporters yesterday in Lagos, said Congress of the Guild on June 27 extended the two weeks ultimatum to the state government, after expiration of its initial 21 days ultimatum to resolve the issues.

The guild leader noted that the grace period was given to the government to meet 70 per cent of the doctors’ demands in order to avert the strike.

He, however, said the Council, after its meeting on July 11, observed that some of the demands were unresolved by the government.
