Lagos doctors petition State Assembly over unpaid salary
« on: September 23, 2014, 10:36:52 AM »

Lagos State resident doctors have petitioned the State House of Assembly, seeking its prompt intervention over alleged refusal of the state government to pay their August salary.

The body in a letter through the state chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association, NMA, called on the lawmakers to facilitate the payment of their salary.

The letter, which was read on the floor of the House by the Clerk, Ganiyu Abiru, urged Governor Babatunde Fashola to pay the doctors? salary to avoid strike.

Recall that NMA had embarked on a nationwide industrial action, which lasted for about two months before it was finally suspended in August.

The doctors wondered why government would refuse to pay their entitlement.

Speaking on the issue, the Deputy Chief Whip of the House, Rotimi Abiru said: ?The issue raised by the NMA is valid?, adding that the House should endeavour to look into it critically, noting that before final pronouncement would have to be made, the House Committee on Health should be mandated to carry out thorough investigation.

In his own contribution, the Leader of the House, Ajibayo Adeyeye, recalled that sometime last year, the Resident Doctors in Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, LASUTH, were not paid a month salary, saying the House should urgently look into it to ?avert another industrial unrest.?

In his submission, Speaker Adeyemi Ikuforiji, who presided over the plenary, directed the House Committee on Health to investigate and report back in a week?s time.
