Joint Health Sector Union, JOHESU, and Assembly of Health Care Professionals, AHPA, says it has suspended its planned nationwide seven days warning strike.
In a statement issued by JEHOSU chairman, Comrade Biobekentoye Joy Josiah, yesterday in Abuja, stated that the notice of the 7-day nationwide warning strike embarked upon by the members of the Joint Health Sector Unions, JOHESU, would come to an end yesterday, Sunday 20″ September 2020.
“since the Federal Government through the Federal Ministry of Health has continued to exhibit high level of bias/discrimination by refusing to address the demands of our members as presented by JOHESU within the seven days of the warning strike as was done to other bodies in the health sector, the next line of action would be decided in due course by the expanded National Executive Council of JOHESU.”
“If is pertinent to also inform members of the Press and the general public that rather than call JOHESU for dialogue to resolve the trade dispute, the Federal Government has resorted to intimidation and blackmail of JOHESU leaders using all forms of instruments and faceless organisations.
“JOHESU will continue to use all legitimate means to defend the rights and demands for the welfare of its members in the health sector.
“Nigerians should bear us witness that JOHESU has shown high patriotism by demanding that public health system in Nigeria is sustained and adequately financed for effective, efficient and affordable healthcare service delivery,” it stated.
