Residents doctors begin warning strike Jan. 28, give reasons

By - - [ ]

Resident doctors at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja, said they will begin three days warning strike on Jan. 28 over shortage of house officers and resident doctors.


Dr. Fatai Balogun, President, Association of Resident Doctors (ARD-LASUTH), said at a news conference on Tuesday in Lagos that the strike would be total.

Balogun said that the strike was earlier suspended based on the promises by the management to replace the exited officers and the affirmation of the approval by the state government.


He said that all available means of communication with both the hospital management and government had proved abortive.

“This crisis has been a recurring event over the past years without any structured policy put in place to ensure seamless replacement of the exited and existing doctors.

“This, however, creates loopholes in the provision of optimal clinical service delivery.


“It is made to appear that the only language understood by them is an avoidable industrial action.

“All we are asking for are seamless employment of resident doctors and house officers; this should not be a tall order.

“The association is left with no option, but to reluctantly resume the suspended strike with a three-day warning strike which inevitably commences at 8.00a.m on Monday, Jan. 28

“Until our struggle in September, the government did not employ doctors.

The state government, after the struggle, employed only 55 house officers and promised to employ the remaining 25 in December, 2018.

“Up till now, the remaining 25 have not been employed,“ he said.

Reacting, the LASUTH Chief Medical Director, Prof. Adetokunbo Fabamwo, said that positive action would be taken to avert the proposed strike.

Fabamwo said that the Head of Service, Mr. Hakeem Muri-Okunola, would ensure that all the paper works needed in the recruitment of doctors would be made possible.

“The new Head of Service believes there should be a template for automatic replacement of doctors; he says he will work toward that in order to address the shortage,” he said.
