Breaking: Nigerian Health Workers Suspend Strike After Meeting Tinubu by LegendHero(m): 7:15pm On Jun 05, 2023
Health workers’ union under the umbrella of the Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU) has suspended its 12-day-old strike after meeting with President Bola Tinubu on Monday.

JOHESU National Vice President, Obinna Ogbonna, confirmed the development to PREMIUM TIMES on Monday evening.

Mr Ogbonna said the strike had been suspended due to the progress made during the engagement with the president.

He said the health workers “called a meeting shortly after meeting with the president and decided to call off the strike and gave a 21-day timeline to the government.”


Meeting with the president
“We met with Mr President at the villa earlier today, and he pleaded with the striking health workers to give him the benefit of the doubt that he will resolve the matters amicably to our own benefit and positive results,” Mr Ogbonna told PREMIUM TIMES’ reporter in a telephone interview.

“The congress considered his plea and also said we should give a 21-day timeline to assess progress and commitment of state actors in resolving the issues,” he added.

PREMIUM TIMES earlier on Monday reported how Mr Tinubu urged JOHESU to call off the strike and allow its members to return to work.

Health workers strike
The health workers’ union commenced an indefinite strike on Thursday, 25 May, following the alleged failure of the Nigerian government to meet its demand.

The health workers are demanding the immediate approval and implementation of the technical committee report on CONHESS adjustment by the government.

They also demand immediate payment of the omission and shortfall in the COVID-19 hazard/inducement allowances of affected health workers in federal health institutions.

Other demands are “the immediate and unconditional implementation of the pharmacist consultant cadre, unconditional payment of all withheld salaries of Federal Medical Centre, Owerri, Jos University Teaching Hospital, and the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, and outstanding April and May 2018 salaries of members at FMC, Azare.”

The union also called for the speedy implementation of the increase in the retirement age from 60 to 65 years and 70 years for consultants in the health professions.

Nice one!

His Excellency, President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu (GCFR) negotiation skills are next to none!


This is what Peter could not do in Anambra at ordinary state level, that doctors had to embark on strike that lasted a year

The speed fast ooo.

They met the president today and called it off today.

I just hope the president fulfill his own end of the bargain because that will build trust in him for future negotiations.

God bless Nigeria.

Why are all these unions led by Igbos?🤔🧐

Is this some sort of coincidence or what?

Because Tinubu and his Owambe boys will be viewing everything they do from the ethnic prism instead of their altruistic intentions for the welfare of their members.
