Meanwhile, the workers of the Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital (EKSUTH) will on Monday, January 12, 2020 commence a total shut down of the health institution by declaring a strike if the management fails to reverse the “illegal” sack of their members.

In December 2019, about 200 workers of the hospital were fired by the management, but some have been reinstated due to pressure from the organised labour.

Chairperson, Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU), Omotola Farotimi, while briefing newsmen in Ado-Ekiti said the strike was to start on Friday , but to give the management of the hospital three days extension for it to have a rethink over the issue.

He said the management has been given the opportunity to enter into a memorandum of understanding with the labour, which must be backed with a letter to extract assurances that all the sacked workers will be recalled before shelving the strike.

“We have given the management another extension of three days and it will end on Sunday, December 12, 2020 and if nothing is done before that day, there will be a total shutdown of the system at EKSUTH from Monday.”
