CAN Appeals To Striking Doctors


The Lagos Island East chapter of the  Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has  appealed to the striking doctors in Lagos State, southwest Nigeria, to suspend the  strike and resume duty for the benefit of poor and sick Lagosians.

Rev. Michael  Akintola, chairman of the chapter made the appeal during a press  conference on the association’s 19th year anniversary and presentation of awards for  leadership excellence to some dignitaries in the country.

“It is better to jaw-jaw than  war-war; we are appealing to them to go back to work  for the sake those who cannot afford the services of private hospitals. They should  forget whether they are being cheated or not. They please go back to save Lagosians  from  dying due to the strike,” the clergyman pleaded.

On the anniversary and presentation of awards, the Akintola said the association  decide to use the opportunity to thank God  and also honour some dignitaries who  have in one way or the other impacted positively on the people.
