Nigerian health workers have announced suspension of its industrial action which it embarked upon seven days ago.

The Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU), umbrella body for the health workers asked members to resume duty on Monday, September 21.

The body embarked on strike on September 14, demanding for improved welfare and payment of COVID-19 special inducement and hazard allowances, adjustment of Consolidated Medical Salary Structure since 2014, among other demands.

JOHESU National Chairman, Biobelomoye Josiah in a statement on Sunday said, “Nigerians should bear us witness that JOHESU has shown high patriotism by demanding that public health system in Nigeria is sustained and adequately financed for effective, efficient and affordable healthcare service delivery.

“In view of the above and in line with the resolution of the expanded NEC meeting held physically and virtually on Sunday, September 20, 2020, I hereby declare that the seven-day warning strike is suspended.”

Recall that prior to JOHESU strike, National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) had embarked on strike protesting welfare shortfall which it later suspended.
