Medical doctors under the employ of Lagos State government have resolved to extend the 21-day ultimatum they gave the state government by two weeks before they embark on a three-day warning strike.

The doctors, under the auspices of Medical Guild, had issued an ultimatum on June 4 on, asking the government to address issues that affect their members.

The issues include; the state government’s COVID-19 response, salary disparity, shortage of doctors, and Medical Residency Training Act among others.

In a statement obtained by our correspondent on Monday, the association said that at the end of the Emergency Congress held on Saturday, it has resolved that the state government should be given two weeks more ultimatum, starting from Monday, June 29, to meet at least 70 per cent of the demands or it will embark on a three-day warning strike.
