JOHESU, AHPA COMMENDS FG OVER WITHHELD SALARY PAYMENT
Written by Website Admin on August 22, 2022
The Joint Health Sector Unions and the Assembly of Healthcare Professional Associations have commended the Federal Government for paying the withheld salaries of their members.
The government had withheld the April and May 2018 salaries of JOHESU and AHPA members after the health workers embarked on a strike.
The acting National Secretary of JOHESU, Mathew Ajurotu, in a statement on Sunday, said some of its members in FMC, Owerri, JUTH and LUTH were yet to receive their April and May 2018 salaries.
The statement was titled, ‘Update on the demand for adjustment of CONHESS as done for CONMESS and other demands of JOHESU/AHPA.’
“We find it very necessary to put on record our deep appreciation of efforts to get JOHESU/AHPA members paid their long withheld April and May, 2018 salaries due to high wire schemes and intrigues of our sector which played out at high levels and compelled the avoidable and unnecessary seizures of the salaries of our members.
