Health workers declare indefinite strike nationwide

Date: 2017-09-21

The Joint Health Sector Union (JOHESU) on Wednesday declared a nationwide indefinite strike.

Chairman of the Union, Mr. Biobelemoye Josiah, who made the disclosure during a media briefing in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, said the strike will become effective on Thursday, September 21.

Josiah said the Union had issued another seven-day ultimatum on Thursday, September 14, 2017, to again draw the attention of the government to their demands but nothing meaningful was achieved with the ultimatum.

His words, "This lackadaisical attitude of the government has necessitated the resolve of JOHESU to call out all our members nationwide to withdraw their services and stay at home with effect from midnight of today (Wednesday) even after waiting patiently until this hour on the approval for adjustments of CONHESS. However, rallies and meetings should be held at all hospital premises every other day.

"We once again appeal to FG to tow the oath of honour and implement all agreements, memorandum of understanding, and courts judgments, while we urge our members at the tertiary health level to make the strike total, and comprehensive.

"In the event that no appreciable response is received from the government within 15 days of commencement of the strike by the Federal Tertiary Health Institutions, all our members in the states, and local governments nationwide are directed to join the action by September 28," Josiah said.
