Ondo MHWUN Directs Members to Await National Directives before Joining Strike

By Dupson Collins,25th May, 2023

Following the directive by the Joint Health Workers Union (JOHESU) on the proposed strike action slated for Friday 26th, May 2023, the Ondo State Chapter of the Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria (MHWUN) has instructed its members to continue with their normal duties pending the directive from the national body of the union.

In a Press Statement signed by the State Chairman of the Union, Comrade (Chief) Segun Ajiboye stated that the Union has not received any directive from the national body of MHWUN in regard to the strike.

It could be recalled that the strike action became imperative with the inability of government to implement all agreements made and entered into with JOHESU among others demands of the Union.

Comrade Ajiboye clarified further that the strike called by JOHESU is restricted only to the Federal Health Workers and has nothing to do with the state health workers.

He commended JOHESU for always agitating for improved welfare for health workers in Nigeria, adding that the State Chapter of the Union will continue to provide needed support in the struggling of better welfare for its members.

Comrade Ajiboye enjoined health workers in the state to be calm and go about their normal duties as they await further directives from the National Secretariat of the Union.

The Press Statement Reads:

COMRADES, THE STATE COUNCIL WISHES TO INFORM YOU ONCE AGAIN THAT THE STRIKE CALLED BY JOHESU IS RESTRICTED ONLY TO FEDERAL HEALTH WORKERS. THE STATE WILL COMPLY FULLY WHEN DIRECTED. WE REMAIN PROUD OF JOHESU AND ITS AGITATIONS FOR IMPROVED WELFARE FOR HEALTH WORKERS NATIONALLY. LET’S BE CALM, GO ABOUT OUR NORMAL DUTIES AS WE AWAIT FURTHER DIRECTIVES FROM THE NATIONAL SECRETARIAT.
