LUTH comes alive as resident doctors resume work
Management of Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Idi-Araba, has said that full services have been restored in the hospital, as doctors, who had been on strike since November 29, 2018, have resumed work.
The director of administration, Babajide Grillo, in a statement yesterday, informed the general public that salaries of LUTH doctors (honorary consultants, resident doctors and house officers), which were delayed as a result of shortfall in personnel budget, had been paid.
However, as a result of Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS), the new platform for payment of salaries, a few staff might experience some irregularities, which will be resolved in the next two months, the management noted.
Grillo added: “We wish to use this opportunity to thank all staff for their orderliness and patience during the period. We also thank all government functionaries and their officers for their support and valuable assistance in resolving the issue. The minister of health, minister of finance, accountant-general of the federation, director of IPPIS, director of funds and director of budget in the budget office, and the presidency all worked tirelessly to resolve the problem.”
The management, while wishing all their clients a happy and prosperous new year, pledged to provide unalloyed services to the Nigerians and to contribute in alleviating their suffering, and that “this year will witness giant strides at the hospital.”
