FUEL SUBSIDY REMOVAL: Healthcare Workers To Join NLC Strike On Wednesday

The Joint Health Sector Unions and the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives have declared their intention to join the upcoming strike by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) scheduled to commence on Wednesday, August 2, 2023.

The National Vice Chairman of JOHESU, Dr Obinna Ogbonna, said health workers are feeling the effect of the economic hardship.

Dr Ogbonna said, “All the trade unions are one affiliate or the other to the Trade Union Congress and the NLC, so if the two of them unanimously agree on the strike, that means the unions in the health sector, the academics, private and other industries will be involved.

“So, it will be very dangerous if we have to embark on the strike. Even NANNM will join the strike because it is an affiliate of NLC.”

However, Ogbonna, warned against miscreants hijacking the planned strike.

Meanwhile, the President of the Nigerian Medical Association, Dr Uche Ojinmah, said doctors in the country are not NLC members, so they would not be joining the NLC planned strike.

“We are not a member of the NLC, so we will not join the strike,” Ojinmah said.
