President Muhammadu Buhari has appealed to workers in the health sector to bear with the administration in their demands as it braces up for the challenges posed by the Coronavirus outbreak to the economy.
The President, who made the appeal on Tuesday when workers in the health sector under the auspices of Joint Health Sector Unions, JOHESU and Assembly Healthcare Professionals Associations, AHPA paid him a courtesy call at the Presidential Villa Abuja, assured that government was looking into their issues with a view to resolving them.
President Buhari also called on the visitors to appeal to the patriotic sentiments of their members in these trying times and continue to work for further development of the country.
The Nigerian leader used the opportunity to stress that his administration’s successful drive for food sufficiency in the last 4 years will definitely come in handy now with the drop in government revenue.
JOHESU, an amalgam of 5 registered trade unions and AHPA, under the leadership of Biobelemoye Joy Josiah, had come to intimate the President with some of the contentious issues in the sector and to thank him for some of the positive developments.
