The Minister of State for Health, Dr.Khaliru Alhassan, has assured that no member of the Joint Health Sector Union (JOHESU), who embarked on the strike action that started in November 2014, will be victimized.
The Minister, who announced the end of the strike action by the workers Monday night, however urged them to henceforth, work amicably as a team with other health workers. While stressing the importance of dialogue as a tool for resolving differences, the Minister thanked all those who had helped to bring an end to the strike action.
Also, health workers said they suspended their long strike out of respect for the office of the President. They said the strike was suspended following a meeting between President Goodluck Jonathan with leaders of the union. At the briefing held together with Minister of State and Supervising Minister of Health, Dr Khaliru Alhassan, leaders of the group said the President had agreed to their demands.
