The indefinite strike by the Joint Health Sector Unions and Assembly of Healthcare Professional Associations has been put on hold for 21 days.
Following a Monday meeting between the union leaders and President Bola Tinubu, the suspension was made public.
The acting national secretary, Matthew Ajirotu, said that the president had pledged to accede to their demands.
He said, “JOHESU has just suspended its strike with a caveat to review it after 21 days.
“We met President Tinubu today at a 1-hour parley and he promised to give approval to the demands after further consultations with appropriate quarters in government.”
