Kano – Health workers at the National Orthopaedic Hospital Dala, Kano, on Wednesday began an indefinite strike over non payment of three months salary.
The News Agency of Nigeria [NAN] reports that the workers had earlier gone on a five-day warning strike which expired last week.
An official of the health workers union who spoke to NAN under anonymity said that the action was to pressurise the Federal Government to pay them.
“We call on the federal government to pay our three months salary as this has brought untold hardship to our members.”
Chairman of the workers union, Mr Nasiru Lawan was not immediately available for comment, but the hospital’s spokesman, Malam Rabi’u Mohammed confirmed the development.
He said that the workers had commenced an indefinite strike to protest the non payment of their three months salaries.
