Lagos Doctors Resume
SAN FRANCISCO, March 26, (THEWILL) – Striking medical doctors employed by the Lagos State Government have called off their seven-week old strike that crippled medical services in state owned public health institutions.

The doctors also announced that the state government has recalled the sacked former Chairman of the State Medical Guild, Dr. Ibrhim Olaifa.
Doctors said they would resume work on Monday, March 28, 2011.
