Members of the Nigerian Union of Allied Health Professionals (NUAHP), would begin an indefinite nationwide strike, on Monday, March 6, 2017.
The National General- Secretary of the Association, Mr Ayinde Obisesan, made the announcement earlier today in Ibadan.
The directive reads:
You are hereby directed to commence an indefinite strike action with effect from 12: 01 am, Monday, 6 March, 2017, until otherwise directed.
This is sequel to the ultimatum issued to the government since 20 January, 2017 and the inability of government to address our demands positively.
NUAHP is an umbrella union for health workers such as physiotherapists, pharmacists, dieticians, medical laboratory scientists, optometrists, radiographers, dental therapists, medical physicists, health information officers, clinical psychologists and medical social workers.
