There is a strong possibility of industrial strike in the health sector as members of Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU) and Assembly of Healthcare Professional Associations (AHPA) have vowed to embark on a nationwide strike if the Federal Government does not address their three discontentment.

According to the National Chairman, JOHESU, Comrade Biobelemoye Joy Josiah  and  National Secretary, JOHESU, Comrade Ekpebor Florence the decision  was taken  after their Three-Day consultative meeting in Abuja where it was resolved that the federal government  should  urgently revisit the constitution of the membership of the boards of all the Federal Health Institutions (FHIs) as the list of members published in December 2017 seriously violates the Teaching Hospital Act which provides that a representative of health providers must be appointed on all the boards.
