The Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU) has commenced mobilisation for a national rally in Abuja to draw attention to what it described as tyranny of officials of health ministries in both federal and state levels against workers in the sector.

Briefing journalists yesterday in Abuja, chairman of JOHESU, Comrade Josiah Biobelemoye, said that the union took the decision after reviewing the events relating to the January 31, 2019 ultimatum issued to the federal government to meet their needs.

Some of their needs included the withholding of salaries of JOHESU members for the months of April and May 2018, headship of hospital departments, upward adjustment of CONHESS salary structure, implementation of consultancy cadre for health workers amongst others.

According to him, “after a painstaking appraisal of the totality of events, JOHESU resolved that all members would dedicate Friday, February 1 and Sunday, February 3, to prayers for God to fight its pending battles with the government.

“JOHESU in collaboration with NLC/TUC will stage a national rally in Abuja to draw attention to the tyranny of officials of health ministries in both federal and states against health workers in public health facilities on Monday, February 4.

“Zonal and state rallies involving the generality of JOHESU members to continue on Tuesday, February 5. This must be held in conjunction with stakeholders,” he said.

Biobelemoye called on the over one million members of JOHESU, their spouses and voting age children who together form a block of over 2.4 million members to collect their PVCs in view of this month’s presidential election.

He stressed that while JOHESU remains non-partisan, it is committed to establishing the building blocks of a better Nigeria.
