Share

Doctors under the aegis of the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) in Lagos said they will begin an indefinite stay-at-home strike at 6 pm today (Wednesday) over harassment by
security agencies.

The doctors made their resolution known in a statement on Wednesday signed by its Chairman, Dr Saliu Oseni and Secretary, Dr Ramon Moronkola.

“All doctors under the auspices of the Nigerian Medical Association in Lagos proceed on a sit-at-home starting from 6 pm today, Wednesday, 20th May 2020 indefinitely, until
such time when the Government and the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr Hakeem Odumosu are clear on how they wish to operationalize the lockdown/restriction of movement directive as it relates to essential service and service providers, including healthcare services and doctors,” the statement read.
