“We will resolve all the issues. Please go back to work,” President Tinubu appealed to the leaders.

Expressing the readiness of the union to get its members back to work, Acting Chairman, Obinna Ogbonna, entreated Tinubu to pay attention to the healthcare delivery system in Nigeria through adequate investment in healthcare infrastructure and better welfare for workers in the sector to stop brain drain.

“Mr. President, now that we have assurance from the top, we are encouraged to go back and talk to our members with a view to going back to work,” said Ogbonna.
