NLC demands resignation of health minister

Written by  Jan 27, 2017

Members of the organized labour yesterday staged a protest at the Ministry of Health demanding the resignation of the Minister of State Health, Osagie Ehanire for reinstating the Medical Director of Federal Medical Centre, Owerri.

The protesters under the auspices of Joint Health Sector Unions comprised the Nigeria Labour Congress, Trade Union Congress and Medical and Health workers.
NLC president Comrade Ayuba Wabba said the unions had issues with the ministry for reinstating the MD who had been arraigned in court on corruption related charges.
Wabba accused Ehanire of shielding the MD from justice as well as supporting the victimization of staff who reported her corrupt acts.
The labour leader said NLC had written the minister to ask him to invoke the provision of the Civil Service Act that provides for indicted public officers to go under investigations.
