Breaking: El-Rufai orders sack of Nurses below level 14

The Kaduna State Government on Tuesday ordered the sack of nurses below level 14 for joining a strike called by the Nigeria Labour Congress.

The government has also directed the state’s Ministry of Health to place advertisements for immediate recruitment of new nurses to replace those dismissed.

The NLC commenced an industrial action in the state on Monday over the sack of over 7,000 civil servants in the state, a move rejected by the Governor Nasir El-Rufai administration.

According to the government, the sack of public servants has become imperative due to dwindling financial resources and higher wage bills which have become unsustainable.
