Members of the Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists of Nigeria (AMLSN) Rivers State Branch have staged a peacefully protest against what they term ‘intimidation, aggression and victimization of its members by the management of the Rivers State University Teaching Hospital (RSUTH).’
following a move by Clinicians to take headship and control of the Laboratory at RSUTH, the Leadership and Elders of AMLSN Rivers met with the Speaker of the House and thereafter submitted a Petition to the house against the unlawful move.
Also in another move to stop this encroachment, AMLSN went to court to seek an order of injunction to maintain status quo but rather than obeying documents and laws establishing professional institutions; the Management of RSUTH resorted to brute force and further oppression by transferring the Chairman and the Vice Chairman of AMLSN RSUTH Chapter who are at the front line of this struggle to rural villages outside Port Harcourt where nothing is happening so as to render them redundant.
It is in the face of this ugly and unlawful incidences that members of AMLSN Rivers State Branch went on the peaceful protest.
The statement reads in part.
