Mr Chimele Ogbonna, Vice President of JOHESU, made the disclosure on Thursday in Jos and said that the health workers had explored all avenues for an amicable settlement of the issues and were left with no other option.
“If the agreements with JOHESU in 2009, 2014 and 2017 are not honoured, we will embark on an indefinite nationwide strike.
“The strike will be total and affect all health institutions from federal, state and local governments,” he stated.
The vice president listed the issues that necessitated the pending industrial action to include skipping of CONHESS 10 and non implementation of court judgements.
Others, according to him, included same scale promotions aberration, promotions arrears yet unpaid since 2012, skewed appointment of Chief Medical Directors and Chairmen, Medical Advisory Committee, and many others.
