Fresh strike looms as JOHESU demands April, May salaries by katty : June 18, 2018, 09:35:48 AM
Fear of another nationwide strike in the health sector is hanging on the loose as the minister of health, Isaac Adewole has confirmed that government may not be able to pay federal health workers nationwide after resuming from near two months strike. Reports from across the country have reliably confirmed that the federal health institutions have resorted to the selective payment of its workforce through glaring nepotism and favoritism under the pretext of staff that were not part of the strike
 
The minister of health, Isaac Addewole however directed the CMD's to compile few list of staffers due to paucity of funds as plans have been concluded to reduce by more than half the over 750,000 workforce of JOHESU members that recently returned from strike after truce and intervention by the NLC and the National Assembly
.
Efforts to reach the minister and the media team along with some of his personal aides proved abortive, as they have deliberately shield away from ‎any media statement that Involved the refusal to pay health workers in the last two months running into the third month. 
 
Reliable sources close to top government officials in the federal ministry of health confirmed the ministers insistence not to pay health workers arrears of two months salaries in line with no work no pay guidelines. 
 
In a face of with the President of the NLC,Ayuba Waba,it was confirmed that President Buhari may not be unaware of the decision against the workers in the‎ federal health sector as they insisted, the best practice and policies must be invoked.
 
The implications of the implementation of the minister's decision will attract another massive strike involving all health sector of the country. Pundits have accused the current minister of health Isaac Adewole in connivance with NMA  had reverted himself to minister of doctors,instead of minister of health to the detriment of the sector.

Efforts by the international bodies saddled with the health programs ‎had warned on the dangers of government playing down on the importance of health to ordinary Nigerians by refusing to pay worker.  The most dangerous signal is the divide and rule tactics adopted between the staffers in the health sectors and skipping chunk of others
 
It was also confirmed that only the CMD,University of Maiduguri teaching hospital paid the two months arrears after the health workers resumption from strike but was queried by the minister ‎to show course why he will not be sanctioned as sources confirmed of a warning strike of 48 hours after the sallah break/celebrations.
