Members of the Ondo State chapter of the Nigerian Union of Allied Health Professionals, NUAHP, on Wednesday shut down activities across health facilities in the state.

NUAHP, which comprises Medical Laboratory Scientists, Optometrists, Physiotherapists, Pharmacists, Health Information Managers/Officers, Dieticians, Radiographers, among others disclosed that the move was due to the hardship its members have been subjected to, following irregular payment of salaries.

Recall that medical doctors within the employment of the state government had on February 5, commenced an indefinite strike over the same issue.

While emphasizing that the state government had earlier been approached over the untold hardship its members had been subjected to, the Chairman of the Union, Adedire Adeyinka explained that health workers had been faced on daily basis with exposures to Lassa Fever and COVID-19,

Adeyinka also frowned at what he described as irregular salaries and payment of 50% as part payment of November 2020 salary by the state government.

While emphasizing that members of the union would no longer accept percentage salaries being paid by the Ondo State government, Adedire said the situation is already taking its toll on health workers as they could no longer transport themselves to work.

He further explained that unlike other government workers who were told to work from home over a period of time, members of his union were always on their duty post 24hrs on daily basis with call duties inclusive.

However, the Chairman commended the government for the giant strides in the health sector, particularly, its efforts at reducing mother and child mortality, free health care services and floating of the recent molecular laboratory in the state.
