Nurses and midwives in federal health institutions across the country are set to abide by the decision of the Joint Health Workers Union -JOHESU to embark on industrial action tomorrow Thursday September 21 if the federal government fails to accede to its demands at the expiration of the ultimatum given to the government by midnight today.
Rising from a stakeholders’ meeting in Abuja, the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives -NANNM, called on its members in federal health institutions which include teaching hospitals, research centers and federal medical centers to down tools and stay away from hospitals and other health facilities nationwide on the order of the umbrella body.
