The Joint Health Sector Union (JOHESU) has called of its 43-day old strike and has ordered its members to resume work immediately.

The directive was contained in a communiqué issued at the end of the National Executive Council meeting of JOHESU and Assembly of Healthcare Professional Associations in Abuja.

The communiqué read in part, “The various gains from the meetings with the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, were presented to the NEC of JOHESU, after exhaustive deliberations and discussions, the NEC in session approved that the six-week old strike be suspended this day Thursday, May 31, 2018 because of the sympathy the unions have for the suffering Nigerian masses and also to pave way for further negotiations to continue on Monday, June 4, 2018.”

Addressing journalists after the meeting, on Thursday, Mr. Josiah Biobelemonye, President of the union, said the suspension is a show of respect for the Senate President Bukola Saraki, who intervened after several failed negotiation meetings with the Federal Government.
