By MustaphaYauri


Abuja   –      The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, has appealed to National Association of Joint Health Sector Unions ( JOHESU) to shelve planned strike commencing at midnight on Wednesday, Sept. 20.

The minister made the appeal in a statement by Mrs Olajide Oshundun, the Assistant Director, Media and Public Relations of the ministry on Wednesday in Abuja.

Oshundun quoted the minister as saying “the Federal Ministry of Health and Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment have had series of meeting with the leadership of JOHESU of which most of their demands had been met.”

He added that some of the issues addressed by the meetings included payment of promotion arrears that pre-dated President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

The minister added that other issues raised by JOHESU were still being deliberated upon with the leadership of the Union.

Adewole, therefore, appealed to JOHESU to shelve their planned strike in the interest of the generality of Nigerians, especially the less privileged that may not afford healthcare services in private hospitals.

He assured that the Federal Government would continue to do everything possible to guarantee quality and affordable healthcare for Nigerians.
