Nurses Threaten Strike, Give Gov. Sule Ultimatum.

National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives, Nasarawa State Council, has issued a 14-day ultimatum to Governor Abdullahi Sule, threatening to commence an industrial strike if the demands of health workers in the state are not addressed.

The association expressed concern over the state of the health sector and warned of its imminent collapse if urgent steps are not taken.

In a letter signed by the state Chairman, Attah Ayaka Avre and Secretary, Alaku Ayuba, the association pointed out several demands that they claim have not been addressed by the state government.

These demands include the gross manpower shortage in hospitals, implementation of the reviewed Consolidated Health Salary Structure CONHESS, implementation of the reviewed hazard allowance, and the payment of 2021 and 2022 uniform allowances.

The NANNM stated that despite previous correspondences and a meeting with the Commissioner of Health on January 23rd, 2024, no tangible progress has been made towards resolving these issues.

They called for the employment of more nurses, midwives, and clinical attendants, as well as the provision of modern equipment in hospitals to enhance healthcare delivery.
