In the same vein, nurses in the state under the umbrella of the National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives recently went on a warning strike over the same issue of irregular salary payment.

Speaking, the Chairman of the NUAHP, Prince Adedire Adeyinka, explained that health workers were exposed to various deadly diseases such as Lassa Fever, COVID-19, among others.

He noted that without prompt payment of salaries, it had become difficult for his members to fortify their immune system against the ravaging pandemic and other diseases.
