Curfew: Lagos doctors begin indefinite sit-at-home



The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), Lagos State Chapter, has embarked on an indefinite sit-at-home protest

The Chairman, Dr. Saliu Oseni, and Secretary, Dr Ramon Moronkola gave the directive to members following alleged unfair treatment by the police over the COVID-19 curfew protocols.

NMA National President Dr. Francis Faduyile, said: he is aware of the sit-at-home because the police said it will not exempt them from the curfew but it is not a strike since there is no industrial dispute

The NMA leaders said that their decision was as a result of the conflicting directives by the state government and law enforcement agents on the status of essential workers, including doctors and other health workers.
