Weekly Trust - - News - Isi­aka Wak­ili

The Joint Health Sec­tor Union (JOHESU) has urged Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari to in­ter­vene in its on­go­ing strike. The Na­tional Vice Chair­man of th union, Og­bonna Chimela, made the call in an in­ter­view with State House re­porters on Fri­day. at the old Ban­quet Hall of the pres­i­den­tial villa, Abuja, on Fri­day.

Chimela said Buhari’s in­ter­ven­tion was im­per­a­tive to avert pos­si­ble col­lapse of the coun­try’s health sys­tem. He said Buhari was be­ing blan­keted from vi­tal in­for­ma­tion con­cern­ing the sit­u­a­tion in the health sec­tor.

“From our in­ves­ti­ga­tion and from what we know now, we have dis­cov­ered that our Pres­i­dent, Muham­madu Buhari, has not been well-in­formed of the hap­pen­ings in the health sec­tor, with some in­for­ma­tion not get­ting to him, be­cause we know who he is, a sin­cere man who has the love of an av­er­age Nige­rian at heart. If he is aware of this present sit­u­a­tion in the health sec­tor, we know he would go direct in ar­rest­ing the is­sue, and re­solve it,” Chimela said.
