Lagos doctors suspend “sit-at-home” action

The Nigerian Medical Association has suspended its “sit-at-home” in Lagos State.
The suspension of the action came barely 24 hours after the association had asked its members to embark on an indefinite “sit-at-home” over alleged harassment by security agents in the state.

It made a reference to a situation where an ambulance carrying a patient was prevented from moving to its destination while the attending health workers were harassed and temporarily detained.

In a release on Thursday, the NMA said it has got assurances from the state government and top hierarchy of the Nigeria Police Force that doctors will no longer be harassed or intimidated.
