JOHESU, AHPA suspend strike after talks with President

by Daniel Onakemu

Health workers, under the aegis of the Joint Health Workers’ Union (JOHESU) and Assembly of Healthcare Professionals (AHPA), have suspended their indefinite strike.

JOHESU National Vice Chairman Dr. Obinna Ogbonna, who confirmed this to The Nation, explained that the plea, assurance and body language of President Tinubu convinced the union members to give a 21-day timeline to the Federal Government to begin implementation of some of their demands.

He said: “We have just returned from the expanded National Executive Council (NEC) meeting. With the level of engagement from the government side, coupled with some of the indicators we have seen so far, and with our visit to the Villa to see Mr. President who gave assurances that he is going to look into our issues with the mindset of resolving them, we brought the matter to the congress.
