Medical Workers under the aegis of The National Association of Government General Medical and Dental Practitioners (NAGGMDP) has directed all its members to withdraw their services from the states’ infectious Disease Center with immediate effect.
The Union said that the directive became neccessary following the state governments’ failure to accede to their demands.
The Union Secretary, Dr Olasankiju Tj, in a statement said that governments’ intervention so far lacked a ‘human face’.
He said that the Union had last month withdrawn the services of its members working in the employ of the state government due to government’s refusal to meet their demands.
According to the statement, the Union directed its members to continue to work till Thursday morning July 2, 2020 in the interest of the general public, particularly confirmation of the Covid-19 Status of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.
The Statement said, it is however, imperative that our members be withdrawn from services immediately from midnight of 6th July 2020 due to lack of human face expected from the government.
