After a nine-week industrial action, Lagos State Government yesterday agreed to pay 75 per cent of the consolidated medical salary structure (CONMESS) to the aggrieved medical and dental personnel in the state.



The increase was contained in a statement by the Commis-sioner for Establishment, Training and Pensions, Mr. Jide Sanwo-Olu, who said Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola (SAN) had approved a 75 per cent rise for the medical officers.
The statement said Fashola “has directed the implementation of an increase in the salaries and allowances of medical/dental officers in the public service of Lagos State.

“Further thereto, having painstakingly examined the issue, Fashola has directed in line with the newly approved Pay Policy of the state, an implementation of an increase in the salaries and allowances of medical/dental officers in the state public service to an amount equivalent to about 75 per cent of the Consolidated Medical Salary Structure in order to prevent further loss of lives and protect the welfare of the citizens of the state”.

The statement also said the government also agreed to review the dismissal of Dr. Ibrahim Olaifa; the commencement of the deduction of the Guild’s check-off dues through the state Treasury Office and review of the issue of tax deduction in order to comply with relevant tax laws of government.

The government urged the striking doctors to call off their strike.
The doctors had embarked on the indefinite strike for nine weeks due to the failure of the government to address their grievances.
But when THISDAY reached its principal officers last night, the Medical Guild, an association of medical and dental personnel in the employment of the state, had not taken a position on the 75 per cent upward salary review.

It was gathered that the Guild would not accept the 75 per cent review, insisting that the government should implement the consolidated medical salary structure in full because the increase would be lower than what doctors in other states of the federation are getting.
