Lagos Nurses Suspend Three-Day Warning strike

The Lagos State chapter of the National Association Of Nigeria Nurses And Midwives (NANNM) has suspended its three-day warning strike.

Naija News reports that the nurses had embarked on the warning strike to protest poor remuneration and working conditions in the state health sector.

Speaking to reporters on Monday after an emergency congress, state Secretary of the association, Toba Odumosu, said the strike was called off after a meeting with Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Sunday.

Odumosu said the governor’s interventions on their demands urged the council to call for an emergency congress on Monday.

He noted that after considerations and a review of feedbacks and resolutions reached with the government, congress has taken the decision to suspend the strike action effective from Tuesday.

Odumosu, however, said the association urged all nurses and midwives within the metropolis to return to their duty post by 8:00am on Tuesday.
