Lagos Health Workers Suspend Strike Temporarily



The Nigerian Union of Allied Health Professionals, NUAHP, has agreed to suspend its ongoing strike in Lagos state.

The union urged the Lagos State Government to uphold all agreements.

Mr Sode Adegbenro, Acting Chairman, NUAHP, Lagos State Public Service, made the disclosure in an interview with NAN in Lagos.

NUAHP members in Lagos State Public Service cut across health workers in the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), all General Hospitals and Primary Health Centres (PHCs).

Adegbenro said the union suspended the indefinite strike for four weeks to allow the state government actualise the seven demands brought before it by the union.

He, however, noted that the strike would resume after four weeks if the government reneges on implementation of the agreements.

“On May 25, we held a meeting with the representatives of the government at the state Ministry of Establishment, agreements were reached and both parties signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).

“The union held a congress on May 26 to review the outcome of the meeting and agreements signed with the state government.

“We decided to empathise with the patients and considering the prevailing economic situation of the country, we reached a consensus to suspend the strike for four weeks.

“This is to reduce the stress being experienced by patients who are seeking treatment at various health facilities and to enable the government to actualise the agreements within specified timeline.

“The strike was suspended on Monday evening and all our members are back at their duty posts,” he said.
