Kaduna nurses suspend warning strike


The National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives in Kaduna State has suspended its warning strike.

This announcement was made in a statement by the association’s chairman, Ishaku Yahaya, on Monday.

The union decided to suspend the strike after seeing serious commitment from the government through the offices of the Secretary to the State Government, the Head of Service, and the Commissioner for Health. These discussions led to the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding.

The strike, which started on July 8, 2024, aimed to press home their demands for an improved welfare package. Yahaya mentioned that the strike recorded a huge success and had 100 percent compliance from members.
