Medical Director Urges Health Workers To Resume Work

 The Medical Director, Federal Neuro-psychiatric Hospital, Kaduna, Dr Taiwo Sheikh, on Friday appealed to striking workers in the health sector to resume work.

Addressing newsmen in Kaduna on Friday, Sheikh urged the aggrieved health workers to “show patriotism and pity the sick that require medical attention’’.

According to him, the government is working towards addressing all the grievances raised by members of the Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU).

He assured members of the public that the hospital had made adequate plans to cater for the health needs of its patients.

The medical director said government would resolve all the issues, adding that all tertiary hospitals had been directed to continue to render services to the citizenry.

Sheikh said that the government was still paying the salaries of the striking workers as a sign of its willingness to encourage them to return to work.

He, therefore, appealed to the JOHESU members to consider the plight of the citizenry and appreciate government efforts by calling off the 10-week old strike.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the JOHESU members embarked on the industrial action to press home their demands for improved working condition, equipment and infrastructure in public health facilities in the country. (NAN)
