The Lagos State government has sacked all striking medical doctors in the state. This is following the doctors' refusal to end their strike, which has lasted for over two weeks.
The doctors proceeded on an indefinite strike on April 24 after they were summoned to face a disciplinary panel for participating in the three-day warning strike. Before that, they embarked on a three-day warning strike last month and resumed work.
The doctors' demand was for the state government to fully implement the Consolidated Medical Salary Scale for all the doctors in the state.
