NMA Appeals To Fashola Over Unpaid Salaries


The Lagos State Chairman of the Nigerian Medical Association, Dr. Tope Ojo, has appealed to the state Governor, Babatunde Fashola, to use his office to ensure that the August and September salaries of doctors under its employ are paid.

He made the appeal at a news briefing organised by the association in Lagos on Sunday. Ojo said that it was unfair that the Lagos State Government had withheld the emoluments of its doctors for the month of August and September as a punishment for their involvement in a nationwide strike called by their parent body, the NMA.

It would be recalled that doctors, under the aegis of the NMA, had embarked on a nationwide strike on July 1, over issues of relativity and other appointments of key officials in the sector.
