In a statement signed by the State Chairman of the association, Comrade Olomiye kehinde and the State Secretary, Comrade Aina Emmanuel Oluwasegun, NANNM said, “Following the salary meeting which was attended by representative of National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives (NANNM), Ondo State Council.
“The position of NANNM leadership was made known in this meeting where the Association rejected 60% salary payment to nurses.
“In situation where the available fund can not pay 100% salary, the money should be kept till when 100% salary can be paid to our members (nurses).
“The act of paying 60% salary to our members is unacceptable..
“The leadership of NANNM urges the state government not to pay nurses in percentage henceforth.
“Only 100% salary is acceptable as far as association is concerned,” the statement indicates.
