The fasting and prayers, according to them, was to seek the face of God and his intervention in their plight. In a bid to further press for the payment of their allowances and other entitlements, striking staffers of the Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, Ado Ekiti, have declared three days of fasting and prayers. The strike, which is still ongoing, was called by the Joint Health Sector Union (JOHESU) of the teaching hospital. They said they were owed several months of salaries, allowances, and deductions. The fasting and prayers, according to them, was to seek the face of God and his intervention in their plight. The union also accused the state government of insensitivity. They vowed they would continue the strike until all their demands, including the outstanding gross salaries and other allowances were met. The JOHESU Chairman, EKSUTH chapter, Omotola Farotimi, who spoke at the hospital on Tuesday after the prayer session tagged, “O’ Lord Heal Our Land,” stated that the programme started on Monday and would end on Wednesday. “We are seeking the face of God, because things are not easy for our members,” she said. “We believe that with God all things are possible. No one can underrate the power of God, that is why we call on Him to heal our land.”[code][/code]
