Striking health workers directed to suspend action

07 January 2015, 18:33

Kano - Kano State Ministry of Health on Wednesday directed health workers at the Murtala Mohammed Specialist Hospital, Kano, to resume at their duty posts with immediate effect.

This is contained in a statement issued by Isma’il Gwammaja, the ministry’s Public Relations Officer.

It said that the directive followed a solidarity strike embarked upon by junior health workers in the hospital.

The statement said that such category of workers was not allowed to take part in any form of strike.

It said that security personnel, plant operators and ambulance drivers should return to their duty posts without further delay.

According to it, the management noted with dismay that despite the current health situation in the hospital, the union resolved to embark on the solidarity strike.

It appealed to patients and their relations to bear with the situation, advising those exempted from the strike to comply with the directive in the interest of industrial peace and harmony.

The health workers had embarked on solidarity strike to support their senior counterparts who had been on strike for the past two months.
