The Joint Health Sector Union, University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) Chapter, on Friday suspended its two weeks strike action.

Mr Olutunde Oluwawumi, the Chairman of the union, who disclosed this during a news conference in Ilorin, explained that the suspension followed series of interventions by various stakeholders.

According to him, the management of the hospital has also been making efforts to ensure that the demands of the members of the union are met.

“We have seen the green light and based on that, coupled with the love we have for the general public, knowing that we must not joke with people’s health.

“We, therefore, considered all these, as well as the tangible efforts being made by the management, which are glaring to us, and we have also confirmed,” he said.

Oluwawumi stated that the union suspended the strike to show appreciation for the efforts of all the stakeholders who had shown concerns about the plight of the union and the members of the public.

He added that all their agitations, including the listed arrears, were being tackled, adding “the UITH management had pledged to address all issues before the end of the year”.

He however cautioned that ”the union will no longer be hoodwinked and deceived anymore,” adding that series of promises were made in the past and all were not redeemed.

The JOHESU boss said that a letter had already been issued to the management to that effect.

”Though the strike has been suspended, for now, the union is however serving a notice of strike in case the management fails to fulfill its promise,” he explained.
