Lagos doctors begin indefinite sit-at-home to protest Police harassment

The Lagos State branch of the Nigerian Medical Association, NMA has directed doctors in state to proceed on an indefinite sit-at-home order to protest what they described as ‘conflicting directives by the government and incessant police harassment’ on medical doctors and other health workers in the state.

In a statement signed by the State Chairman of the NMA, Dr Saliu Oseni and the Secretary, Dr Ramon Moronkola, the sit-at-home order is expected to begin today, (Wednesday), 20th May 2020 from 6 pm.

The medical doctors maintained that it was no longer safe for their members to continue to provide healthcare services under the present confused arrangement.

They said the development became necessary as a result of the numerous complaints of police harassment from their members who were either going home after close of work, and some on transit to heed to emergency calls at the various hospitals.

They lamented that, whereas the directives by President Muhammadu Buhari, through the Presidential Taskforce on COVID 19, was clear on the exemption of essential workers including doctors and other health workers, the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Mr. Hakeem Odumosu, has been issuing conflicting directives that essential workers, including doctors and other health workers were not exempted.

“As a direct result of the conflicting directives of the government and the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, the NMA was inundated yesterday (Tuesday, 19th of May, 2020) evening of several cases of harassments and intimidation of doctors and other health-workers by officers and men of the Lagos State Police command.

  16. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  17. Everything composed made a bunch of sense. However, what about
    this? suppose you were to create a awesome title? I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t solid., but
    suppose you added a post title that makes people desire more?

    I mean Lagos doctors begin indefinite sit-at-home to protest Police harassment –
    The Lagos Mail is kinda vanilla. You should look
    at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create post headlines to grab viewers interested.

    You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to
    grab readers excited about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would
    make your posts a little livelier.

  18. This is the perfect site for anybody who really wants to find out about this

    I personally will need to…HaHa). You certainly put a new spin on a topic that
    has been discussed for many years. Excellent stuff, just excellent!
