The Lagos State Government has urged striking doctors under its employment to suspend their three days warning strike and return to work.
Earlier, on Monday, doctors working for the government had declared a three-day warning strike over safety and welfare issues.
Mr Gbenga Omotoso, the Commissioner for Information and Strategy pleaded on Monday night that the doctors return to work.
Omotoso said that the call became necessary after a joint meeting between the State Commissioners for Health; Establishments, Training and Pensions, and Head of Service with the Medical Guild, Association of Resident Doctors, and relevant stakeholders on the warning strike.
He noted that the state government was disappointed at the warning strike embarked upon by the Guild.
