The Lagos Branch of the Nigerian Medical Association’, NMA, Thursday called off its sit-at-home order over the continued harassment of their members by Police officers.
The Nigerian Medical Association in Lagos State had asked its members to embark on an indefinite ‘sit-at-home’ over alleged harassment and intimidation of medical workers by security agents in the state.
In a press statement made available to newsmen and jointly signed by the Chairman, Dr Saliu Oseni and the Secretary’ Dr Ramon Moronkola, the said the decision to reverse the sit -at home order was informed by the intervention of the State Governor and the top hierarchy of the Nigerian police.
“The association has further received assurances from Mr Governor and the top hierarchy of the Police that no health workers will be further harassed in the course of their lawful efforts to sustain services in the middle of the pandemic.”
He said, “Before it got to this level last night (Tuesday), the Lagos State Government intervened and called the top hierarchy of the police and told them the confusion we had in town and immediately the matter was resolved.
“When the NMA said it was going on strike, the commissioner for health and everybody have been on it and they have spoken to them that the police had reversed themselves and there was no need to go on strike and they agreed.”
