Gov. Abdulrazaq approves 100% CONHESS for Kwara nurses

The Kwara State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, has approved the implementation of a 100 per cent Consolidated Health Salary Structure for nurses in the state.

This was disclosed in a statement on Thursday jointly signed by the Chairman and Secretary of the National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives, Kwara State Council, Mr Aminu Shehu and Markus Luka, respectively.

The statement indicated that the governor also approved the recruitment of more nurses to fill the vacuum created by the migration of health workers abroad.

According to the statement, the governor expressed the hope that the move “will improve the quality and standard of nursing care, in line with global best practices.”

The health workers’ union appreciated the Executive Secretary of the State Hospital Management Bureau for playing a vital role in the struggle to ensure that the government met its demands.

The association also commended AbdulRazaq for the approval and the recruitment of more nurses, saying it would boost manpower and health care delivery in the state.
