Health workers under the auspices of Joint Health Sector Unions, JOHESU has declared a nationwide strike over hazard allowance and non-payment of withheld salaries of their members among others.

JOHESU, in a statement on Sunday, has told its members to withdraw services from midnight of Sunday, September 13, 2020, since nothing concrete was achieved at the meeting with the Federal Government.

According to the statement, leaders of various health unions in the sector unanimously reached the decision at the end of their expanded National Executive Council.

“In the light of the above, the meeting of our expanded NEC was held Saturday 12 September 2020. And at the end of the meeting, which was held both physically and virtually, it was unanimously agreed that since nothing concrete was achieved at the said meeting with the Federal Government, that the strike notice is still germane and alive.

“Therefore, the 15-day ultimatum still subsists and with effect from midnight of Sunday, 13th September, 2020 our members shall withdraw their services due to Federal Government’s inability to meet their demands,” the statement added.

The health workers had in a letter dated August, 30th, addressed to the Federal Ministry of Health, FMOH, issued a 15- day ultimatum to the Federal Government to meet their demands.

The demands of the aggrieved workers include; the review of the defective implementation of COVID-19 Special Inducement and Hazard Allowance; the payment of all withheld salaries of JOHESU members, including the withheld April and May 2018 salaries; and the adjustment of Consolidated Health Salary Structure (CONHESS) as was done with Consolidated Medical Salary Structure (CONMESS) since 2014.

Others listed in the letter with the reference number HQ/JOHESU/ADM/FMoH/VOL.II/55 are the implementation of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria (ADR) Consent judgment and other court judgments as well as the call to address the structural and infrastructural decay in the health sector.

I was thinking there won't be anymore strikes for a while. Na waoo.
A country in which health workers have to go on strike is yet to take lives seriously.

I know the government is bleeped up and these health workers are fighting for their right but why can't all be in unison with themselves and strike at once. When one body strike let others join so that when the government negotiate ,they will negotiate together . Just imagine,after last week's negotiation with a group another health group wants to strike.
When someone is fighting a battle on multiple fronts the person will sure surely lose lots of wars.

I knew that was bound to happen when the doctors have been attended to by the FG.

Over time, these people have come to realize that the only language the government of Nigeria understands is strike action and it's doing no good to us as a nation.

Even the doctors that are back to work now, it's only a matter of time before they call for another strike action.

Nigeria don tire me cry

This is a period you all need to take extra care because,

1. No doctors to attend to you in government hospitals because of strike.

2. No money to give you adequate treatment and care in public hospitals.

3. Traditional medicine this days is not like before, the only thing they prepare effectively now is drink for erectile dysfunction grin
