Joint Action Committee (JAC) of Abia State University Teaching Hospital (ABSUTH) Aba, has shut down operations at the state’s apex health institution.

The action followed expiration of warning strike issued by JAC to Abia Government via a letter dated Oct. 20, and acknowledged by the government.

Mr Samuel Kalu, the Chairman of JAC, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on Wednesday in Aba, that organised labour in ABSUTH resolved to embark on the strike as government did not meet their demands.

The letter made available to NAN was signed by representatives of the unions.

The unions are: Association of Resident Doctors (ARD), Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria (MHWUN), National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives (NANNM), Senior Staff Association of Universities’ Teaching Hospitals Research Institutes and Associated Institutions (SSAUTHRIAI).

The letter states inter alia: “We the Joint Unions of ABSUTH under the Joint Action Committee (JAC) wish to inform the government that we have exhausted our patience and can no longer watch our members and their families die in penury due to non-payment of 22 months salary arrears.

“This has been made known to the government through previous notices especially the notice of April 15, 2021 and the subsequent suspension on April 16, 2021.

“Equally, we wish to inform the government that for the past seven years, no pensioner in ABSUTH had been paid a dime and this cannot be allowed to continue.

“Consequently, the JAC gives the government seven days ultimatum to address these grievances or face an indefinite strike action from midnight of Thursday, Oct. 28, 2021, to press home our demands.”

Kalu told NAN that the unions could no longer endure the treatment the state government was meting out to them.

“We waited until now to announce this because we had been hoping that after everything, Abia Government will change its minds and obey an earlier agreement we entered to be paying us consistently and gradually.

“But the state government still remained adamant and reneged on its own promise.

“We waited to this time because of the weekend and the sit-at-home in the South East and now, it is official that ABSUTH workers have resumed an indefinite strike because government had not responded as expected.

“We have told them that if they are considerate to pay us five months arrears at once, we will consider the patients that need the services of the hospital and return but if not, the strike continues,” he said.

But if they see these politicians on the road tomorrow they'll still hail them just to get N500 each.

Abia state and Bad Governors.
How on Earth is that state slogan ,'God's Own State'?


The current governor is busy dragging with that Youthful Presidential Hopeful Failure on who should clinch the 'Worst Governor of the Year' award.

By 2023 almost all the governors in the 36 states will be owing salaries.

I see a great revolution, I see the masses chasing the leaders out of their offices and setting it ablaze, I see a violent uprising in all the geopolitical zones.

I see Nigerian dividing.

This I have seen.

Tomorrow some nitwit would advocate that this one too just like Orji Uzor Kalu is fit to be president. You cannot pay salaries yet you call yourself a leader. These stupid politicians in Nigeria think politics is all about their lousy selves. No vision. Thieving lot.

A worker deserves his wages.

How wicked can you be to owe someone 22 months of salary?

22 freaking months.

Well, This is Nigeria. Anything you see, take it like that.

And 2023 this one that calls himself governor will now impose another idiot worse than him on the people and Abia people will gladly vote. The problem is not the leaders, the problem is the people holding PVC.

Ikpeazu is one mistake Abians shouldn't have allowed happen. And they went ahead to re-elect him o. undecided


They should give another party a chance there, PDP should be voted out in that state.


I wonder why T.A orji and his son, ikuku are still walking around free. undecided
