The executive of the National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) after hours of emergency meeting in Asaba have decided to suspend the strike the body commenced on Thursday, December 3, 2020.
According to sources, the meeting was held on Sunday and the nurses in the state are expected to resume work on Tuesday December 8, 2020.
The suspension, according to the union leaders, is for two weeks to give opportunity for the state governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, to intervene and resolve all standing issues, Emerald News reports.
There has been a long drawn battle between the Commissioner for Health, Dr. Mordi Ononye, and the nurses in the state over series of issues ranging from appointment of a junior officer to head nursing department in the Ministry of Health among other demands.
Some of the members who spoke to Emerald News after the meeting on Sunday said the strike was embarked on following the nonchalant attitude of the health commissioner towards the demands of nurses in the state.
