Health Workers To Begin Strike ‘Worse Than Operation Python Dance’

The Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU) has announced that it will begin a nationwide strike next Wednesday.

The unions said the planned action was due to the government’s failure to meet up with their demands.

Demands which include payment of arrears of specialist allowances and upgrade of their members due for promotion.

JOHESU tagged the planned action ‘Operation Alligator Bite’, saying it would be more severe than ‘Operation Python Dance’ the army launched in the south-east.

The threat is coming a few days after resident doctors embarked on strike. The government negotiated with the leadership of the National Association of Resident Doctors  (NARD) with a resolution to meet some of their demands. But days after the end of the negotiations, the strike has not been called off.

The meeting of the leadership of NARD in Abuja on Tuesday was stalemated; hence the association could not take a decision to call off its strike
