Zamfara health workers threaten to join strike

22 December 2014, 18:23

Gusau - Chairman of Medical Health Workers Union of Nigeria in Zamfara, Sabo Tsafe, said they would join the strike by National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives if the latter’s requests were not met by government.

Tsafe issued the threat in Gusau on Saturday.

The chairman said they would join the strike if the Federal Government failed to respond to the demand of their colleagues.

He said that the union officials were in Abuja to meet with the federal government on the issue, adding that the outcome of their meeting would determine whether or not they would join the strike.
