Date Posted: 05/May/2015
The National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives have applauded Mr. President for his intervention in the impasse between JOHESU and the federal minister of health, and urged him to do the needful as promised before handing over.
They made this call in a communique made available to Nursingworld Nigeria which was issued at the end of the 8th labour/ Induction workshop and delegate meeting organised by NANNM (FHI sector) from 20th to 24th April, 2015 at Atlas Hotel Gwagwalada, Abuja with the theme positive labour relations for enhanced productivity.
The workshop and delegate meeting had in attendance most of the newly elected unit officials of federal health institutions all over the federation. The workshop emphasized the importance of positive labour relations for enhanced productivity. 
According to the Communique obtained by Nursingworld Nigeria, at the end of the workshop, delegates resolved as follows:
The congress in session appreciates the president and commander in chief of the federal republic of Nigeria, Dr Goodluck Ebele jonathan GCFR for a successful conduct of the just concluded 2015 elections and his resilence with the spirit of sportsmanship in accepting the outcome of the election result.
The participants in session also wish to congratulate the president elect, Gen Muhammadu Buhari (Rtd) GCFR and all others that emerged victorious in the just concluded general elections
Delegates in session urge the federal ministry of health to treat all health professionals fairly in order to ensure harmonious relationship in the health team
Members call on the federal government to further equip the various hospitals in the country to avoid unnecessary spending on medical tourism
The participants in session call on Government at all levels to increase the training of nurses and midwives in order to overcome the shortage of skilled manpower in the health sector.
The congress observed with great disappointment the attitude of some CMDs and MDs who deliberately refuse to pay uniform allownace to nurses and Midwives against the provision of public service rule NO: 130127. we therefore advice these chief executive to desist from such in the interest of industrial harmony.
The congress in session observed the calculated attempt by some CMDs and MDs to frustrate the smooth running of labour unions in the hospitals by deliberately refusing deduction of COD or with holding those deducted. We therefore caution against such act to avoid industrial crisis
The participants in session also observed with dismay the attempt by the CMDs and MDs to privatize some departments in the federal health institutions thereby making such health services unaffordable and inaccesible to the populace. We therefore call on the federal governmetn to intervene and call the affected chief executives to order.
In conclusion, the participants call on the organs responsible to address the aforementioned issues in order to ensure harmony in the health sector.
The comunique was signed by Com. Nana Takai chairman and Com. Dr Ngozi Osunde, Secretary
