Senate president, Bukola Saraki, and the chairman of the Senate committee on primary healthcare, Senator Mao Ohuabunwa, are currently meeting with the minister of health, Professor Isaac Adewole, and the minister of labour, Senator Chris Ngige.
The meeting which is taking place at the office of the Senate president is geared towards resolving the JOHESU stike.
Saraki had yesterday, Thursday, May 24, met with the leadership of JOHESU to hear their side of the story.
The Senate president who is a London-trained medical doctor is seeking to end the impasse which has dragged on for a while, and almost crippled the public health sector.
JOHESU is comprised of hospital workers including nurses and pharmacists, but excluding doctors and dentists.
The strike was embarked upon because of salary adjustments, promotion arrears, working conditions among other issues.

The union recently called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately sack Professor Adewole, for what it described as “unfair treatment” over their plight.
They made the call after their northeast zonal consultative forum meeting held in Gombe on Wednesday, May 23, accusing the minister of bias.
