Nurses, Midwives To Commence Strike Today
The major unions of health workers have announced the commencement of their nationwide strike today.
The Joint Health Sector Unions and Assembly of Health Care Professionals, JOHESU, and the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives, NANNM, announced the strike yesterday.
According to a statement signed by the National President of NANNM, Abdrafiu Adeniji, all nurses and midwives in all federal health institutions are to proceed on an indefinite strike action from midnight of Wednesday.
Mr. Adeniji said the association is in agreement with all JOHESU’s positions on the recent seven-day ultimatum given to the federal government to accede to all its lingering demands dated back to 2012. The strike is coming barely a week after the National Association of Resident Doctors suspended its strike. God heal Nigeria!
