The Lagos State Government has withdrawn the case it instituted against strikingÂ medical doctors from the National Industrial Court in Lagos.
The withdrawal follows the inability of the two parties to reach an amicableÂ settlement.
The government had gone to Court to compel doctors to end their strike.Â The CourtÂ had ordered the two parties to reach an amicable settlement out of Court. But, allÂ these had failed.
With the withdrawal of the case against striking doctors, no one is sure of the nextÂ step the government will take.
The doctors are demanding improved conditions of service to be at par with theirÂ counterparts in the federal civil service.
