Gov Fashola Sacks All Striking Doctors In Lagos


Information reaching our disposal
is that the Lagos State
Governor, Babatunde Fashola, has
ordered the sacking of all the striking
doctors on the payroll of the state
government.

Fashola’s action was in
response to the refusal of the doctors to
end their strike, which has lasted for
over two weeks.

From what we gathered, the
implementation of the Governor's order
began immediately as the affected
doctors started receiving their sack
letters on Monday morning.

The doctors had proceeded on an
indefinite strike on April 24 after they
were summoned to face a disciplinary
panel for participating in an earlier 3-
day warning strike.

The doctors demand is the full
implementation of the Consolidated
Medical Salary Scale for all doctors in
Lagos State, a demand which the state
government see as unreasonable.

We hear the Fashola administration has
already concluded plans to replace them
with "more sensitive and dedicated
doctors".
