A number of hospitals visited across Lagos metropolis recorded scanty patronage by patients even as many health workers were seen at their duty posts, showing readiness to work.
Comrade Abdul Rasheed Olowu, a JOHESU representative at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) said members of the union were ready to work, but low turnout of patients is not keeping them busy yet.
According to him, the low turnout is natural because it is the first day after the strike was suspended.
He said it might take a few days before activities would be fully normalised at the government hospitals.
He added that many people might not even be aware of the strike suspension yet noting that it is after the news has circulated that medical activities and consultations will regain momentum.
Meanwhile, Ikorodu General Hospital recorded a relatively large number of patients with scores of the patients interviewed by Daily Trust excited about the suspension.
Mrs Osuala Munirat, a patient, said; “We are happy that the hospitals are running again. We plead with the government not to allow any disagreement degenerate into a strike because these health workers render essential services.”
