The Joint Health Workers’ Union (JOHESU) has suspended its indefinite strike after meeting with president Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The National Vice-President, JOHESU, Obinna Ogbonna, who confirmed the development on Monday evening, said the strike was suspended due to the progress made during engagement with the president.
He said President Tinubu pleaded with the striking health workers to “give him the benefit of the doubt” to resolve matters amicably.
However, the union gave a 21-day timeline to the government to “assess progress and commitment of state actors” in resolving the issues.
