Birogba said that the state government had a duty to ensure that health service delivery to the people of the state was not disrupted.
He said that Lagos State Government had been implementing infrastructure development and capacity building in its health sector.

The NMA had on Dec. 22, 2013 directed its members to commence a nationwide strike from 8.00 a.m. on Jan. 6, if government failed to satisfactorily meet its demands.
The doctors said that they would be protesting against poor working conditions, inadequate funding and poor infrastructure in the nation's health sector. (NAN)
