FG Declares JOHESU Strike Unnecessary by ogododo: 8:48pm On Sep 13
ABUJA— THE Federal Government, Sunday, described the strike declared by the Joint Health Sector Unions and Assembly of Health Care Professionals, JOHESU as unnecessary, ill-timed and illegal.

The government said its commitment to the health sector was manifest and irrevocable.

The health workers had declared strike starting from 11:59p.m., on Sunday, September 13, over the inability of the Federal Government to meet their demands.

However, the government has directed various unions under JOHESU not to go ahead with the strike, saying the Ministry of Labour and Employment had apprehended the dispute with the conciliation initiated on Thursday, September 9, which was still ongoing.

A statement by the Deputy Director, Press and Public Relations in the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Charles Akpan, said going ahead with the action would be illegal as it is in clear breach of the ILO Principles and Conventions on Strike and Sec. 18 of the Trades Disputes Act, Cap T8, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.

It urged JOHESU not to arm-twist or intimidate the Federal Government that had shown “clear commitment to tackling the challenges in the sector, as evidenced by the huge resources it has been pouring into the sector since the Covid-19 pandemic broke out.”

According to the statement, “the Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige, has effectively apprehended the trade dispute as forwarded to him by JOHESU and has brought JOHESU and the Federal Ministry of Health, their employers, to conciliation since Thursday, September 9.

“Parties in disputes are expected not to arm-twist, intimidate or foist helplessness on the other party while negotiations are ongoing as per Sections 8 and 18 the of Trade Dispute Act (TDA) 2004 barring any strike, when the matters are before a conciliator and undergoing conciliation.

“Any strike now is inimical to an equable settlement of the dispute, bearing in mind especially that this is a grave period of a pandemic, where the Federal Government has spent about N20 billion to pay April/May and an additional N8.9 billion for June 2020 on Covid-19 hazard and inducement allowances, respectively, to all categories of health workers that are mainly JOHESU members.”

FG should ask themselves if there existence sef is even necessary. An average Nigeria is regretting voting for this myopic and failure regime and they are here calling a union strike unnecessary . U're owing them 2 months old salaries since 2018 ,they kept quiet till 2020 . Una brain no work to pay them there entitlement since. Ordinary senators and rep members dey get covid allowance and yet the health workers are also been cheated on there entitlement . What's the usefulness of paying all those jagbajantis rep and senator covid allowances when the real risk takers aren't been taking care of. I have a friend working in UCH, these guy contracted Covid19 , The drugs he brought with his own money was about 15k , Yet the senators and reps that never stepped there feet out of there homes were paid handsomely while they leave the real icons to beg and suffer for crumbs . Imagine a government who doesn't care about the state of health, now Corona is finish. Watch as they suspend all findings to the health sectors now, while they travel out again for medical check-up as usual.

Imagine A country paying his health care workers 5k salary as hazard allowance while the rep and senators are paid millions in hazard allowance , abegi, which is more hazardous . Health attendants, nurses, doctors are all exposed to getting hepatitis,HIV,TBjust for taking care of patients and serving the country with all they've got ,yet at the end ,they are paid a psaltery 5k . Ask urself, is these country not upside down already? Doctors are flying out daily and Nigeria government doesn't give a Bleep about it cos they don't even use the hospitals , Any slight sneezing ,They are off to UK.

When we go get sense for these country sef .
