The Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU), had midnight of Tuesday, 17 April 2018, commenced strike action with many avoidable deaths in the country being recorded and many innocent persons maimed for life.
The striking health workers comprise about 90 percent of the total health workforce.
In a statement on Thursday in Abuja, Ezeakor said that for the interest of the poor masses who cannot afford the services of private hospitals, the federal government should reach a compromise with the striking health workers.
“The federal government should reach a compromise with the health workers because Nigerians are dying. For the interest of this country and the poor masses, the federal government should ensure that this strike is called off and the health sector should be reform,” he said.
According to him, if elected president, he would not allow strike especially in critical sectors of the economy.
He said, “The health sector is very important and attention must be given to it. There is no way health workers should be allow to go on strike when many people are dying for lack of health services.”
He urged the youth to prepare themselves for leadership position adding that gone were the days where there was believe that Nigerian youths are not capable of leadership positions.
