The Senate House of Assembly has pleaded with the Joint Health Sector Union, JOHESU, yesterday, to cancel strike which has been in effect since three weeks and has affected the health sector across the country.
The union began this industrial action as a result of the insensitivity and lackadaisical attitude of drivers of the health sector.
The senate urged the Minister of Interior to take necessary steps to check immigration just as it asked the Minister of Health to ensure alertness to fight whatever cases that might arise and get Ebola vaccines ready for an emergency.
Meanwhile, the People’s Democratic party, PDP says the failure of President Muhammadu Buhari to address the industrial action embarked on by health workers across the country is a clear manifestation of insensitivity to the plight and suffering of Nigerians.
In a statement issued on behalf of the party by its national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, “is it not the height of insensitivity that while Nigerians are in dire need of medical attention are also languishing?”
He also added that the president has abandoned Nigerians without any form of intervention and went on medical tourism to London with our common patrimony.
The party said if elected in 2019, it would prioritize the health, security and welfare of Nigerians as it urged Nigerians to vote out All Progressives Congress (APC) administration of President Buhari in the 2019 elections.
