Senate President To Meet JOHESU Over Strike

Saraki Interferes In Health Workers Strike

Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, the President of the Senate, has announced his intention to meet the leaders of the Joint Health Sector Unions(JOHESU).

Dr Saraki mentioned that he will revealed the new and better offer to the group leaders. Saraki further urged the health workers to return to work as soon as possible to help the people.

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on Sunday evening disclosed that he would meet the leaders of the Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU) tomorrow being Monday.

The meeting, which comes as a follow-up to his earlier mediation between JOHESU and the Federal Government, was scheduled to be at 3:00pm at his office at the National Assembly.

It would be recalled that last week, Saraki started the bid to resolve the ongoing strike in the health sector that has crippled Nigeria’s healthcare facilities for the past 40 days.

Attendance at the meeting were the Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole and the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige.

Part of the statement released by Saraki read, “Since the discussions initiated by the Senate President, it is believed that government has improved on its offers to the striking health workers.

“If it is true that government has improved on its offers to JOHESU, it will be desirable for the health workers to also stretch out a hand of fellowship — in good faith — to meet the government mid-way and accept the offer, so that we can finally resolve this matter and have a win-win situation for the union, the government and the Nigerian people who make use of our public health institutions,” Saraki said.
