Following the deadly attacks that occurred at the Emir of Kano’s Central mosque in Kano, which claimed about 200 lives, and about 135 people wounded, the Health Workers suspend indefinite strike to reduce the number of deaths arising from the attacks.
The leadership of the Joint Health Workers Union has directed its members to return to duty, urgently.
The Secretary of the health workers’ union, Comrade Kabiru Ado Minjibir told journalists that its indefinite strike “is hereby suspended following the Friday attack on Kano central mosque where hundreds of worshippers were now rushed to the hospital.”
Members of the union at Aminu Kano teaching hospital and National Orthopaedic Hospital, Dala had joined their counterpart across the country on indefinite strike over age-long demands from the Federal Government.
Meantime, thousands of residents, yesterday, trooped to hospitals to donate blood in response to the clarion call to assist victims of the blasts.
