The management and entire board of Coalition for Good Governance (CGG) is saddened to note that despite several appeals from patriotic and public spirited individuals and groups to the Medical Guild to shelve its 3 days warning strike in
it still embarked on the strike against wise counsel. Lagos State
Already, the strike is taking its toll on innocent ordinary persons whose only hope of accessing medical care is through the services provided by public hospitals since private medical cost is beyond their reach. We are saddened the more by the pain and anguish exhibited on the faces of patients and their families who have been denied medical care as a result of this avoidable industrial action.
The Coalition for Good Governance (CGG) is hereby using this medium to profusely and patriotically appeal to the Medical Doctors to allow their allegiance to their oath which is predicated on saving lives be their guiding philosophy in all actions. We are hereby calling on the Doctors to immediately call off the warning strike and enter into dialogue with the state government to resolve outstanding areas of disputes in the agreement.
