Nigeria Medical Association, NMA Nasarawa State chapter has protested the seal off of medical laboratory centres belonging to their members in the state.
State Chairman of the Association, Doctor Bulus Peter announced the position of the association at a news briefing in Lafia.
Doctor Peter described the invasion of medical facilities of their members in the state by Laboratory Council of Nigeria as unacceptable in view of the fact that the medical laboratories in question are up to standard.
He called for the unsealing of the laboratory centres with immediate effect or the state NMA would be forced to take legal action.
Doctor Peter called on members of the NMA in the state to remain calm and desist from any act that would breach the peace.
Six medical laboratory centres in Keffi, Akwanga and Lafia local government areas of Nasarawa state were recently shut down by Laboratory Council of Nigeria.
