Nasarawa Health Workers Begin Indefinite Strike by Akell(m): 1:05am On Jun 08, 2021
The Coalition of Health Professionals Association in Nasarawa State has begun an indefinite strike action over government’s inability to meet up with its demands.

A spokesperson for the association, Kyari Caleb, made the disclosure while briefing newsmen on Monday in Lafia.

He explained that the decision to embark on the strike was agreed on by members of the association over the failure of the Nasarawa State Government to implement promotions for members since 2011 and the N30,000 minimum wage, among other demands.

Kyari said the coalition had exercised patience in its demands, but government’s negligence forced it to down tools as a form of protest.

He stressed that after signing a memorandum of understanding, the government promised to begin implementation of their demands immediately, but up till now, the government had reneged on its promise since 2020.

“The association, in all tertiary health facilities in the state, has withdrawn its services with effect from today till further notice. Members will continue to stay at home until the government does the needful,” he said.

The Head of Service of Nasarawa State, Mr Nicholas Aboki, had in a media briefing on Friday, June 4, appealed to the union to suspend the planned strike action, adding that the government was working hard to improve on their welfare.

It's beginning to happen like a Déjà vu.

A civil war is looming.

I don't know if it was dream or a movie...

Most things happening now seem very familiar to me... its end was devastating.

War choppers hovering, cries, people running to Seme boarder.

I just hope it's a mere dream or a movie interfering with my mind
