Nigerian Senate Calls For End to Strike as Ebola Threat Looms

Following the World Health Organisation's declaration that Nigeria and other African countries are at risk of an Ebola virus outbreak, the Senate has pleaded with the Joint Health Sector Union to call off its three-week strike to enable Nigeria to be on the alert. The union embarked on a nationwide strike to demand salary adjustments, promotion arrears, and improved working conditions for its members.
