As a follow-up to his mediation between Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU) and the federal government, President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, is set to meet with the leadership of JOHESU today at 3pm at his office in the Senate.
A press statement from the Senate President’s media office, noted that Saraki began intervening in the ongoing strike that has crippled the nation’s sector for the past 40 days, with a meeting with JOHESU officials last Thursday and the ministers in charge of the Labour and Health Ministries, Dr. Chris Ngige and Prof Issac Adewole, on Friday.
“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.
