Barring any last minute intervention, the health sector is about to be paralysed.

Health workers in Nigeria, under the aegis of Joint Health Sector Unions and Assembly of Health Care Professionals, would commence an indefinite strike on April 7, 2018.

Chimele Ogbonna, Vice President of JOHESU, made the disclosure in Jos, when he led national officials of the body on a sensitization visit to Jos University Teaching Hospital.

Ogbonna said that the health workers had explored all avenues for an amicable settlement of the issues and were left with no other option.

“This strike is against our wish, but the Federal Government has failed to honour series of agreements with the workers from 2009 to 2017.

“We have given the Federal Government an ultimatum of 30 working days that commenced on March 5 and will end on April 7.

“If the agreements with JOHESU in 2009, 2014 and 2017 are not honoured, we will embark on an indefinite nationwide strike.

“The strike will be total and affect all health institutions from federal, state and local governments,” he stated.
