Federal health workers under the aegis of the Joint Health Sector Unions, JOHESU, will begin an indefinite strike today. 
This is due to failure on the part of the Federal Government to implement the agreement it reached with health workers last year, 2017.

In a statement signed by its National Chairman, Biobelemoye Josiah; and its National Secretary, Florence Ekpebor, the union decided it was best to embark on the strike because the Federal Government refused to take health workers seriously. The statement said the health workers had no other option.

According to JOHESU, before the strike was embarked upon, a 30 -day ultimatum was given to the Federal Government, that expired today, Tuesday.

Top on its list of demands are :
  1. An upward review of the Consolidated Health Salary Structure;
  2. Employment of additional health workers;
  3. Implementation of court judgments;
  4. Upward review of the retirement age from 60 to 65. 

The government cannot afford to ignore some facets of society, as pillars that hold a people up cannot be located at the bottom in the Federal Government's scale of preference. Look across the Federation of Nigeria and you will realise that Doctors are on strike alongside nurses, those who are still working are planning to embark on indefinite strike. This is a wave of strike about to hit us all. Good health is not to be trivialized, he who cannot afford the high rates charged by private practitioners will rather stay at home. In the end, for highly critical cases and even issues that can be avoided will result to death - which is quite inevitable.

I'm calling on the Government at the Federal and State levels to tackle this issues swiftly; meet the demands of the health sector and for those demands that seem difficult, try to reach a comprises. There has to be a solution to the incessant strikes, indeed other areas requires constant pumping of money but I don't believe the government is too poor to attend the needs of those in the health sector. In the end, it is not the workers who suffer, it is the people who require the services of the workers.

A wise government will listen.

In what is being called the spiderman act, 22 year old Mamoudou Gassama reportedly took seconds to reach a child hanging off a balcony 4 storeys high.

The young Malian who entered France some months back proclaimed: “I saw all these people shouting , and cars sounding their horns . I climbed up like that and thank God , I saved the child.
“I was not thinking of anything. I went straight up”, Gassama, who wore jeans and a short-sleeved patterned shirt, told Macron, recounting the episode.
“Bravo,” Macron replied.

He said that the boy was crying when he hauled him to safety and had also suffered an injured foot.
