JUST IN: Court Orders Health Workers To End Strike
The hitherto paralysed health sector is about to come back alive.
The reason is not far-fetched as the National Industrial Court, Abuja, has ordered striking members of Joint Health Sector Union to suspend its on-going strike.
The court ordered the workers to resume duties across the nation within 24 hours.
Justice Babatunde Adejumo gave the order after listening to the submissions of Okere Nnamdi in an ex-parte motion filed by a non-governmental organisation.
The NGO, Incorporated Trustees of Kingdom Human Rights Foundation International, in the motion prayed the court to order the workers to resume work and go back to negotiation table.
Adejumo, who is also the President of NICN, ordered the ministers of Health, Labour and Employment, among others, to immediately set up a committee to address issues raised by labour.
The judge ordered that the parties should arrive at an acceptable and amicable solutions in the interest of Nigerians who are bearing the brunt of the strike action.
The judge also ordered the President and Vice President of JOHESU to attend the negotiations.
The matter was adjourned until June 4 for hearing of motion on notice and originating summons.
