Health workers’ strike ill-timed – Labour Party

Nigeria’s Labour Party (LP) has described the strike action embarked upon by health workers across Nigeria as ill-timed.

The party condemned the current indefinite strike embarked upon by public health workers under the aegis of Nigerian Union of Allied Health Professionals (NUAHP), thereby crippling activities in government hospitals

National Publicity Secretary of LP, Mrs. Ebere Ifendu, in a statement released in Abuja, described the strike as ill- timed and an attempt to frustrate ordinary Nigerians who use public health facilities.
She hinged her party’s appeal for the strike to be suspended on the uncountable sufferings which Nigerians would face as a result of the strike.

She added that, since President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration is winding up, it would not be out place to wait for the incoming administration to settle down fast before bringing up their outstanding demands, especially since governance is a continuum.
Mrs Ifendu also charged the incoming administration to lend a voice in appealing to the Health workers not to inflict more pains on Nigerians, as the issues can be resolved when the new government assumes power, even though it was not the one who negotiated with members of NUAHP.
