Nigerian Medical Association appeals to Federal Government to honour agreements with JOHESU

The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has appealed to the Federal Government to honour all agreements with the Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU), and end the ongoing strike in the nation’s health sector. The association made the appeal in Abuja in a communiqué issued at the end of its 58th Annual General/Scientific and Delegates’ Conference.

According to the communiqué read by its new President, Dr Francis Adedayo, the association said it disparaged the strike and appealed to the Federal Government to end it soon. The association also called on the government to increase budgetary allocation release for health to meet 15 percent of the total budget, to embrace the universal health coverage for all Nigerians.
