Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Sunday met with the Nigerian Association of Nurses and Midwives over the planned industrial action by its members.
The governor, during the closed-door meeting at the State House, addressed the grievances of the nursing workforce in the state.
“At the end of the two hours meeting, both the government and the union agreed on a number of issues that had been causing disaffection between the two parties,” a statement by the state government said.
“Governor Sanwo-Olu pledged the government’s sincerity in the implementation of all that was agreed on, to the delight of the representatives of the nurses.”
According to the statement, the Chairman of the Lagos State Council of the Nigerian Association of Nurses and Midwives, Olurotimi Awojide, thanked Governor Sanwo-Olu for acceding to most of their requests.
“He described the governor as a true leader and father who cares about his children,” it said.
Awojide promised to call an emergency congress of the association on Monday, where the union would announce its decision to call off the planned industrial action.
