*Doctors strike : A cross section of nurses discussing

Uncertainty prevailed up till last night over the next line of action of the striking medical doctors even as the Nigerian Medical Association, NMA, went into a closed-door emergency meeting, apparently to review the situation.

The doctors, who have earlier vowed not to return to work until all their demands are met by the Federal Government, maintained sealed lips on the meeting, saying it will be unnecessary to pre-empt the outcome.
Also, the Campaign for Democratic and Workers Rights, CDWR, has described the 24 point demands of the doctors as reactionary and divisive and that they will not help the struggle to defend the interest of the workers and Nigerians.

Meanwhile, seven days into the nationwide strike, the situation in public hospitals across the country remains the same.
A visit to some of the hospitals in Lagos, after the weekend, revealed empty wards, idle health workers and empty outpatient departments.
Right from the gates of the hospitals, a first time visitor is confronted by empty buildings and an almost grave yard silence that is unusual in a hospital setting, particularly a tertiary institution.
