In Solidarity And Support Of The Illegally Sacked Lagos State Doctors

By Comrade Abiodun Olofinade

 

The United Action for Democracy (UAD), Lagos State Chapter hereby declares its absolute support and solidarity for the Lagos State Doctors illegally sacked by the fascist government of the state.

 

The issues are very clear to any discerning mind. It is a case of government irresponsibility. How can a responsible government sign an agreement with the Doctors only to renege? The fact remains that the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN)’s government in Lagos State signed an agreement to abide by the letters contained in CONMESS. But the Lagos state government turned around to claim that it could not pay because it’s financially constrained. 

 

The question should be asked, didn’t the Lagos State Government (LASG) factor in the consequences of signing the agreement before it went ahead and signed the agreement with the Doctors.

 

The LASG’s arguments basically rely on sentiments, which include the so-called Hippocratic Oath and pretense to true federalism. These hold no water! The LASG’s inhumanity has been clearly demonstrated by the wicked sack of the doctors; it’s support for hike in fuel price and electricity tariff.

 

It should also be noted that LASG’s action contravenes several of the ILO convention which Nigeria is signatory to. And what of the right to go on strike? This kind of insane action is unprecedented in the history of this country.

 

We of the UAD, Lagos Chapter therefore condemn the illegal action and subsequent call for their re-instatement withiut delay. We shall march side by side with the Doctors in the legal steps and on the streets to right this wrong.

 

To Mr. Babatunde Fashola, we say ‘no fist is big enough to hide the sky’! To the Doctors, we say ‘our day shall come’ and we believe ‘an injury to one is an injury to all’. The Doctors’ ‘laugh shall come last’!!

 

Signed:

 

Comrade Abiodun Olofinade

General Secretary, UAD, Lagos State Chapter

TOO BAD!!!

Why will BRF refuse to heed the previous attempts by doctors to get him to keep to his promise and now resort to intimidation, threats and authoritarianism when they finally resorted to a warning strike? It is unfortunate that the gullible masses have been taken in by the govt lies and are against the long suffering doctors, playing politics with their lives. You love your neighbor as yourself. The hippocratic oath expect doctors to care while the constitution place the welfare & security of all citizens on govt. Poor welfare beget dissatisfaction etc. I hold BRF responsible as the remote & immediate cause of this impasse as if he had kept faith with agreements & had even shown he cared for the welfare of his citizens including doctors, he would'nt have allowed things to degenerate to a strike! His present hardline posture & claim of not being involved in the sack is most irresponsible and shameful to say the least. The man should take responsibilty as the executive governor, period!

REALLY SAD!

I think u are the idiot u are

I think u are the idiot u are helping the lagos cabre to hide oath that is for sane community. Not for insane people like fasola & tinubu

What do you know about Englans doctors?

What is the difference between doctors who are on strike without attending to their patients and being sacked from their jobs. It does not make any difference because in both situations they never attend to patients. To educate you further, NHS doctors here in Britain had given the coalition government more than 3 months to embark on strike because of the public sector pension reform. Even at that, they will only embark on strike if they are able to get at least 50% of their members within the stipulated time. But this is not the case in my own country where all we have are rogues in medical profession who can not even pass their medical examinations once to prove that indeed they deserve their pay. Nigeria we hail thee!!

What do you know about England doctors Anonymous?

You are a rogue and very ignorant of this issue. If doctors earn more than Prime Minister here in England, how many of them can embark on such unreasonable strike without giving their employer at least 3 months notice or you are just referring to England doctors without knowing much about their operations and professional callings. The doctors here in England (NHS) are not rogues like their nigeria counterparts. They understand and abide by their professional callings. They cannot just wake up in one week and just embark on strike without folllowing the rules of their engagement. Besides, they respect the sanctity of lives and place premium on human lives unlike our doctors who only care for their pockets.

Rubbish government of Fashola

Rubbish Fashola and his cronies who are jealous of the doctors.

If not for corruption in Nigeria, doctors would earn more than the foolish governor.

In England, the senior doctors earn more the the prime minister.

Shame on Fashola and ACN.

Please CPC, do not align with these useless thieves called ACN. They are one and the same with PDP.

Are you kidding me? Did this

Are you kidding me? Did this joker just say "the so-called Hippocratic Oath"?
The whole essence of the medical profession lies on that oath and while I do not have any ounce of love or allegiance to the Lagos State Governor, this ignoramus of a General Secretary, UAD, Lagos State Chapter should just have voiced his support without thrashing the importance and enormity of the Hippocrates oath?
I don't know how we keep breeding such half-schooled idiots in this nation.
Mtcheew!
