The Coalition of Nasarawa State Health Professionals Association began an indefinite strike over poor welfare on Monday.

The spokesperson of CNSHPA, who is also the Chairman of the Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists of Nigeria, Mr. Kyari Caleb, disclosed this while briefing newsmen on Monday in Lafia.

“All members of the association in all tertiary health facilities in the state have withdrawn their services with effect from Monday, June 7, till further notice.

“The decision to embark on the strike was a collective one. Our members will continue to stay at home until the government does the needful.

“Some of our demands include promotions, failure to implement N30, 000 minimum wage for members, and lack of annual increment among others.

“We have been patient with the government for a long while,” he said.

He said that in June 2020, the union embarked on a strike over the same issues.

“The coalition and government signed a Memorandum of Understanding, with a promise to begin implementation of our demands but unfortunately up till now the government has not kept its word since 2020,” he said.

In a swift reaction, the Head of Service of Nasarawa state, Mr. Nicholas Aboki appealed to the unions to suspend their strike, adding that the government was working hard to improve their welfare.
