Health Minister warns JOHESU against act of irresponsibility and disobedience

Health Minister warns JOHESU against act of irresponsibility and disobedience”

It said the industrial action has affected the health sector across the country.

Professor Isaac Adewole, the health minister, had recently confirmed that negotiations were on with JOHESU to end the strike.

"The Minister wishes to state that in trade unionism, such meddlesomeness arising from an unhealthy inter-union rivalry will adversely put pressure on social dialogue mechanism, clog the wheel of progress and in this instance, retard the return of industrial harmony in the entire health sector".

"Negotiations are still on with JOHESU and the Minister of Labour is leading the negotiation, and we expect that we will conclude on all issues very soon".

Just at the same period, the NMA had released a statement threatening to withdraw their services across health institutions in the country if the federal government acceded to the demands of JOHESU and other health workers.

The minister accused the leadership of NMA of delaying the peace process between the unions and the federal government. The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) correspondent, who visited General Hospital in Bayara town and the Specialists' Hospital, Bauchi Metropolis on Monday, reports that health workers had deserted the hospitals.

According to her, the group is urging the president to use the strike embarked by JOHESU to galvanise all stakeholders to a meeting to find a lasting solution to the protracted crisis.

"Now that we have distributed memos to all the State and Local Government branches of JOHESU, there is total compliance across the state, until further notice", he said.

"We oppose vehemently, any adjustment in CONHESS SALARY SCALE with resultant pay parity between doctors and healthcare professionals allied to medicine, and hereby reaffirm that relativity is sacrosanct", the statement read in part".

In view of this, the minister stated that in as much as members of JOHESU have the right to embark on strikes, they do not have the constitutional right to harass other health workers including members of JOHESU who choose to work.

"This very agreement was entered into and then a memo was made to Mr President as they claimed even though they gave us a copy later".
