BREAKING: NMA Declares Indefinite Strike in 3 Gov’t-Owned Hospitals Over Death of Colleague

Aug 2, 2023 | Entertainment, News


The Lago State chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has asked doctors in the state hospitals on Lagos Island to go on indefinite strike over the death of its member, Dr Vwaere Diaso.

According to The Punch, the medical association also urged all members in the state to embark on five-day mourning while asking doctors in other government-own hospitals to reduce their work activities in honour of the dead colleague.

The affected hospitals that will be going on the indefinite strike include Lagos Island Maternity Hospital, Lagos, the Massey Street Children’s Hospital, Lagos, and the General Hospital, Odan.

Diaso reportedly died at the General Hospital in the Odan area of Lagos after being trapped in the elevator for over 40 minutes on Tuesday, August 1, before she was rescued. The situation became worst as there was no blood to resuscitate her.
