The rift between members of the Joint Health Sector Union (JOHESU) and the Minister of Health, Professor Isaac Adewale have taken another dimension as the Union has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately sack the Minister.
The call came at the Union’s North-East zonal consultative forum meeting held in Gombe Wednesday during which the National General Secretary of the Allied Health Professionals, who is one of the National leaders of JOHESU, Comrade Oluwatoyin Obesesan, accused the Minister of bias in handling issues in the administration of the Ministry.
He opined that the Minister has meted out unfair treatment towards them, thus, lost all it takes to head the Ministry of Health.
Comrade Oluwatoyin speaking to newsmen after the meeting said that the Minister should be blamed for the refusal of members of JOHESU to return to work .
“The Ministry of Health has placed itself to work against this Government, we are calling for the immediate sack of the Minister of Health because he has shown that he is incompetent in the administration of the Ministry.
“The Ministry and the unions had met severely but the Government is not responding saying, the Minister is not responding, he is talking as a Doctor forgetting that he is father to all. What we are asking is simply that the Federal Government should make sure that they implement the agreement they signed with us on 30th September, 2017,″ he said.
He, however, denied the insinuations that they were in rivalry with Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), saying, “there is no rivalry between JOHESU and NMA, our problem is with the Federal Government”.
