The body of doctors had earlier embarked on a five-day warning strike on December 18-22, 2013.

Speaking during a tour of the Island Maternity and other public hospitals in the state to usher in the first set of babies delivered on New Year’s day, Fashola pleaded with the NMA to have a re-think over the decision in the public interest.

“We are passionately pleading with all our doctors to have pity on us mothers, who are made to bear the brunt of all pains in the aftermath of any event.

“Please, do not to go on strike as you have planned. We understand all your grievances and align with your plight and are asking for more dialogue to reach an amicable solution.”
