The Chief Medical Director, Federal Teaching Hospital,  Ido Ekiti, Dr Majekodunmi Ayodele, has called on the National Assembly to strengthen the existing labour  laws  in the country to check incessant strikes in the Nigeria’s health sector. Ayodele , who  ascribed the incessant strikes being witnessed in the health sector to the preponderance of  inter-professional rivalry among the medical unions based on egoism, urged the national assembly to rework the law to put a stop to the abuse of rights and privileges of its employees.

Making particular reference to the over two months old strike embarked upon by members of the Joint Health Sector Union, JOHESU, Ayodele appealed to the striking workers  to suspend their action  to save the sector from total collapse and further decay.

At a press conference in Ido Ekiti on Monday, Ayodele  said the JOHESU members, comprising Pharmacists, Nurses and Medical  Laboratory Technologists,  have been having consistent strained relationships with doctors, saying this protracted egoistic posture was hurting the system.
