Estimated Reading Time: 1

The Lagos State government has responded to the issues raised by members of the Medical Guild who are on a three-day warning strike.

In a statement on Monday, the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, faulted the decision of the doctors to embark on industrial action and asked them to return to work.

He explained that this was because the government had convened a meeting with stakeholders in the health sector over the issues raised.

Omotoso said that despite wrong claims by the guild, the government has been extremely supportive of health workers, especially those at the forefront in the fight against COVID-19.

He added that the government has started paying extra special COVID-19 allowances for frontline workers who were involved directly with the Lagos State COVID-19 Response.
