Gov Fashola recalls all 788 sacked doctors

Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola this evening re-instated all 788 doctors that the state sacked a few weeks back after the doctors embarked on a strike the Government called illegal. The leadership of the Doctor's Association met with reps of the Government and they settled their differences. Now alliswell.

Politics. Politics. Politics. While they were busy striking and playing politics and holding the public to ransom, lives were lost. Were the doctors right to strike? Was the government right in sacking the doctors? The public needs to know. There has to be a public inquiry. In the strike, the public who needed healthcare, lost out. Hopefully legal measures will be put in place to stop this from happening again to the medical profession, the government and to the public.

Now that's the sensible Gov Fashola that that we all know and voted for. He is back to his senses now, I think he had some brain-waves when he sacked the doctors 2 weeks ago - it's okay, we are all humans and it happens sometimes.

Very reasonable man, he is!

BRF is an objective and reasonable governor. He might av made mistakes in d past but he got himself back on the right track.

hmmmmm . . . and the beat goes on . . . .
So what has changed?
Has the Consolidated Medical Salary Structure been implemented yet?
So the family and peoples lives that were lost, jeopardized and traumatized was for what?
All they succeeded is inflicting pain on the poor citizenry of Lagos. Shebi when push came to shove, Fashola's papa was flown abroad for treatment? So in what way was he or the elite rulers affected?
When will we learn as a people?

Leader that think well. They know when they've gone wrong and listen to the people. Not Leaders like JONATHAN EBELE GOODLUCK that let their pride of being defeated get in the way of their logical reasoning.

Our dear boy boy has finally listened to his OGA TIINUBU, Fash is an embarrassment, Im not proud of him, i don't believe he is a true lagosian..
So its only ACN leader that can make u rescind your action. After all the pleading from citizens.

Personally, i can never ever vote for a FASH!!!!

Anyway, congrats to the doctors,

Now at what cost to the common man abeg? If this country were one that bothers with statistics, you'd be amazed at the number of deaths stacked since the begining of this unnecessary strike.

I wonder when our rulers as exemplified by the likes of His Emperor B.R. Fashola that there is strength and definitely not weakness in backing down. It's not cowardice to make a U-turn. I thought they learnt something from the Occupy Nigeria experience.

Lives would have been saved and injuries or ill-health turned around and healed by now had The Emperor only but not called the bluff of these doctors. They may not be perfect but for crying out loud, doctors too need the good life(now don't think I no get my beef with them).

Fashola, as much as my instincts are powered to bad mouth you and give you a thumbs down, I want to be magnanimous enough to say, thanks for eating humble pie.

Now, that is how you do it!!

chioms said...

I beg to differ...these doctors should be allowed for the grief they caused. Do u know how many lives were lost, a friend of mine lost his dad & another lost her first baby cos of the incensitiveness of these doctors *sniffs*, if you go thru their code, their primary objective is to save lives but they chose greed over that. I understand that they are fighting for their rights but then again u caused the loss of hundreds if not thousands of lives. Fashola, in as much as its a good thing u reinstated them, make sure they don't get paid for the weeks they were absent, I know it's notin compared to the lost lives but @ least they shld feel some pain. May the souls that were lost rest in peace but may the blood be on your heads, stupid & incensitve people. *hiss*

What a sefless Governor we have*love u still even though u increased my tuition fee and baned my sug*nt fair though

PRINCELY said...

It's okay that gov. FASH humbled himself to recall the sacked doctors, but, i still pray for the day when leaders in this country will learn to make the welfare of the citizenry that voted them a top priority...all those that died during the strike and sack time have been sacrificed on the alter of ego and stubbornness. GOD help naija

Dat is d fault of d sElfish doctors... Dey left dem in d first place

Yes! A good leader listens.
So happy about this development. Is there any union or relationship in this life without misunderstanding?

Though some have passed on as a result of this singular action.

"so sad"

HEPHZIBAH said...

Well, I see this as destiny's way of providing job for those new doctors. Secondly, Leanda Lee please provide more details to this, I'd like to know if the increase has been implemented, abi it's same old same old, and another strike lurking around.

It has shown that Tinubu and not Fashola is Lagos Governor. After so many tax payer lives have been needlessly wasted, he has eaten the humble pie. ACN is confused.

The new doctors were not really employed. Most of them had other full time jobs and they were told not to resign. They were employed as casual workers and worked in four hour shifts

Kemikal said...

@Khenind, state your argument / comment without being uncivilised. ianhairs is not a fool for speaking their mind. They don't have to agree with you or/and striking doctors. Don't attack free speech.

Keep displaying ur ignorance. I'm sure u dunno the facts about the case just what u have heard from the biased media. So go ahead and expose ur absolute ignorance!

So because their services are essential they should be treated like crap, abi? See how selfish humans are?

The word is 'insensitive' dear. And no, the doctors are not to blame. Have u really read the facts? Ungrateful sombitches! U think drs are spirits? U think they aren't human?

What they were asking for was reduction on the tax government imposed on them. You even ask yourself what do Government use tax money to do.Lagos state government is only planting flowers and they give Tinubu company 2.8 billion naira monthly from tax as consultancy fee. Tinubu owes almost every good thing in Lagos, wait and see when Fashola leaves office you will see how rich he is, he might be richer than Tinubu.

oye said...

@Dr.Khenine, they went on strike first!!! only after they refused to go suspend the strike did he sack them. You cannot hold the government, the people and your patients to ransom. Did they expect the government to jump at their every whim just because we all know they are important? They went against the oath they took and they are at fault for all those lives that were lost. The governor even employed new doctors and that is to show that he tried to cushion the effect of their going on strike. People, be objective!!!

DEEFLAMEZ said...

All i can say is that: THIS IS TRUE DEMOCRACY. HIS GOVT DID WHAT NEEDED TO BE DONE, NEGOTIATIONS WERE MADE AND AGREEMENTS WERE REACHED, WHICH MEANS HE HAS A BRAIN INSIDE HIS HEAD AND ALSO HAS FUNCTIONING EARS ON THAT HEAD WHICH MAKES HIM LISTEN TO THE POPULACE...UNLIKE OUR DEAREST AND DUMBEST PRESIDENT WHO IS NOW IN LAGOS TO CAUSE ANOTHER ROUND OF TRAFFIC AS HIS SECURITY DETAILS BLOCK EVERY MAJOR WAY SO MUCH THAT I HAD TO WALK ALL THE WAY FROM BONNY CAMP TO MY OFFICE AT BAR BEACH.

At least now, the fear of God has been put into government employed doctors. They'll forever think twice before waking up to say they want to go on strike. Nice one BRF.

i think this is the wiseest to do by the Government.If the Government does not call back the doctors, it is the masses who will suffers it.Remember Where Two Elephant Fights,is the Grass That Suffers.
