“They put their lives on the line to save the rest of us,’’ he said.
He congratulated Prof. Jesse Otegbayo, the Chief Medical Director at the University College Hospital, Ibadan, who tested positive for the virus a week ago but became negative on Thursday.
“In the same vein, we pay tribute to the medical doctor and two nurses who contracted the virus from a patient who was rushed to an Abuja hospital a few weeks ago.
“It is on record that apart from the six that were declared free of the virus last week, 11 others were yesterday discharged from the Yaba facility.
“The Lagos State Government deserves a medal for this feat,” Akintola added.
“They are the heroes of the time and they should not make all these sacrifices for nothing. Both the Federal and State Governments should show appreciation for their performance.
“They need motivation in order to register government’s goodwill,” Akintola said.
