Health workers threaten strike over FG’s unfulfilled promises to ASUU


Health workers in Nigeria have threatened to go on a solidarity strike for ASUU.

Their move is in support of the demands of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

Mr Biobelemoye Josiah, National President of the Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria (MHWUN), said this in a statement he jointly signed with Mr Auwalu Kiyawa, Acting Secretary-General of the union, on Sunday in Abuja.

The union asked the FG to implement without further delay all the agreements it had entered with the unions, according to the News Agency of Nigeria.

Speaking in the statement, the health workers said, “MHWUN stands in solidarity with the university based unions in the ongoing struggle to emancipate and reposition the public tertiary Institutions in Nigeria for progressive development.”
