The Chairman, Medical and Health Workers Union, Enugu State Chapter, Mr Maurice Eze, said on Saturday that health workers in state hospitals had begun an indefinite strike to protest the non-implementation of the 2009 Salary Structure.
Eze told the News Agency of Nigeria in Enugu that the approved 2009 salary structure for health workers and professionals had not been fully implemented by the state government.
He said the state government had implemented the doctors’ Salary Structure, but that it had yet to implement that of the health workers.
Eze said, “All the states in Nigeria have implemented the structure, except Enugu.
“We have written and appealed to the state government to pay us but to no avail.
“Even when they took us to court, the court ordered them to pay us because it is our entitlement but the government refused to carry out the order.
“Our two months’ salaries for April and May 2009 were seized because we went on strike to press for our demand and up till this moment, we are yet to be paid the seized salaries.
“We will not call off the strike until the state government meets our demands, “ he added.

Mick Hucknall has confirmed a notorious claim that he slept with 1,000 women.
Asked if the rumours were true, the 54-year-old singer, who has sold more than 60million records said: “It probably is. I’ve not denied that, but I never claimed it. I never bragged about it. I don’t keep count.Hucknall-pix-1“I’ve no idea, but I would think over a 25-year period that’s probably reasonable to say...
But do I want to say it? No. It’s not what makes me tick. I don’t put chips on the bedpost.” Talking ahead of a 30th anniversary reunion of his band Simply Red next year, he added: ‘It’s like kids in a candy store. You can’t believe it. There’s girls chasing you all the time – it’s incredible. “When you’re 24 you don’t give a toss. You’re invincible. You can do anything. Your mind is set in a way that the world is just ready and you’re just going to take it all. You’re just going to have a grand time.”Hucknall formed Simply Red in 1985 and their hits include Holding Back the Years and Stars.
After more than 30 top 40 UK singles and two US No 1s, they split up in 2009. Born into a working class family in Manchester, Hucknall began singing at the age of four and held his first gig when he was just six.
“I was singing all the time. I used to sing for the girls,” he said. “I feel very blessed because I grew up in what was effectively a British musical renaissance.“The Sixties and early Seventies, to me, mark an era that is unsurpassed in British music.”He dropped out of grammar school at 16 after struggling with bullies who singled him out because of his bright red hair. Being accepted at an art school proved to be the turning point for him and after two years at a further education college and three at a polytechnic, he emerged with a 2:2 degree.
He said it was a disappointing result that he blamed on departmental politics. While studying he formed a punk band called The Frantic Elevators, playing their first gig in 1978.Hucknall drifted away in the 1980s to set up Simply Red. Their record Stars, released in 1991, was the best-selling album in the UK for two years running – and remains joint sixth highest of all time.

A schoolboy has become the world's youngest qualified computer specialist after passing a Microsoft Windows exam at the age of just five.
Ayan Qureshi has only just started primary school, but passed the test at Birmingham City University to become a Microsoft Certified Professional.
He has set a new world record for the youngest person ever to pass a Microsoft exam - at the age of six years
Ayan was first introduced to computers when he was just three, by his father Asim, 43, who soon realised his son’s natural aptitude for technology.
The IT consultant then built his son a computer lab at the family’s home in Coventry, West Midlands and started preparing Ayan for the complex Microsoft test.
After just five months training, Ayan sat the 'Supporting Windows 8.1' assessment for IT professionals alongside several adult candidates, even though at five he will not be able to work for another eight years.
Ayan sailed through the two hour exam in September and even finished with time to spare before finding out shortly afterwards he had passed.
"We are just so proud of him," said Mr Qureshi.
"He has plans to take an advanced test in the future but he has to concentrate on school for now.
"He was very interested in computers from the age of three so I started explaining to him about hardware and software and installing programmes.
"I found that whatever I told him, he was able to remember it the next day, so I built a computer lab in our house for him to use, and he loves it.
"I showed him how to install Windows and then decided to enter him for this exam.
"It wasn’t easy teaching him every day but he picked it all up in the end."
When Ayan, now six, and his father arrived at the university invigilators were so shocked to see such a young candidate and they said he couldn’t take the exam.
However, a phone call to Microsoft rectified the problem and Ayan took his place at a computer alongside the other adult candidates.
"There was just a room full of adults there when we went to take the test on a Saturday, but I’m not sure if they all passed or not," said Mr Qureshi.
"He wants to keep on learning so I am sure he will be ready to take more exams quite soon. He’s incredible really.
"He enjoys playing computer games like any kid but now he is more interested about how they work."
The test is normally taken just before or after university by young adults aiming to be information technology technicians.
Sections of the assessment included multiple choice, fill in the blanks, drag and drop, and several scenario based questions.
The computer based outline test examined the applicants’ knowledge of hardware, software, and their understanding of how Windows works.
And the certificate, which he keeps in his bedroom, shows he can use operating systems created by USA computing giant Microsoft.
Ayan, who has a younger brother Rayn, three, has also undertaken some distance learning lessons from London based computer training company IT Bolts.
He was born in Lahore, Pakistan, but his father and mother Mamoona, 34, who is training to become a GP, moved to London in 2009.
The youngster is yet to decide on a career path but hopes for a job involving his favourite subjects of maths and computing.
Most people cope with the stress of college midterms exam by posting whiny Facebook statuses and maybe knocking back a few drinks. Other people apparently have sex with sheep. Hehe!! here is the story read after the cut.
An unidentified male student at Fresno State University in Fresno, Calif., was discovered by campus police on top of a sheep with his pants down.
The fifth-year computer engineering student was apparently reported to police by a female student who lived near the sheep unit. She was startled when she heard a knock on the door, which is why she called police in the first place.
The male student, who had been drinking earlier that day, initially told responding officers that he came down to the sheep unit to wrestle cattle. When the officer pointed out that there weren’t any cattle, the student said it was “all the same,” but revised his story to say he planned on beating and punching the sheep to blow off some stress from midterms.
However, the student eventually told the truth about why he was standing in a barn full of sheep with his pants down at 3:30 a.m. but insisted it was his first venture into interspecies relations. As he was arrested, he allegedly asked officers whether or not he’d be expelled for his actions.
The University has not issued a statement on the incident, but students like John Traini, who is in the animal sciences major, said it was “wrong … just not right.” Other students told reporters from KMPH that a veterinarian went to the sheep after the incident and inspected all five of the animals present at the time.
While it’s up to the school authorities of Fresno State University to decide whether or not the student will be expelled, beastiality is considered a misdemeanor in California. If found guilty, the student could face up to six months in jail and up to a $1,000 fine.
Etcetera in this new article explained how he lived in Kirikiri town with few celebrity friends with whom they all engaged in one ‘crime’ or the other.
Read His Article Below:
Sometime during the week, I paid a visit to Kirikiri Town after a very long time. I grew up there as a little boy and it was there I had the fondest memories of my life. As soon as I got into town, word went round and friends started calling to find out where I was. I hooked up with my childhood best friend, Patrick, and we decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather by going for a walk through the town to recall some of our funniest memories from childhood.
The first thing we laughed about was how Bright Okpocha, the comedian known as Basketmouth, took us along to steal his father’s fowl. We were four very close friends who practically did everything together. I lived in the prison barracks and I was always telling them
mouth-watering stories of how those of us who lived there regularly made chicken pepper soup and plantain porridge with fowls in the barracks.
I never knew Basketmouth was licking his lips to my stories all along until he called us one very beautiful morning to steal his father’s fowl. We got to his family house the next morning and executed the fowl like trained assassins. Basketmouth and myself were assigned to cook the jollof rice while Patrick and Godwin (Basketmouth’s immediate older brother) kept watch in case their mum got back from the market earlier than anticipated.
After cooking, Basketmouth, thinking because he had the biggest eye balls among us demanded to be given the best part of the chicken.
We wasted no time in reminding him of his age compared with everyone else’s. We ate everything and thought that we had rid the house of any evidence that could have incriminated us. We didn’t realise that Basketmouth forgot to throw away the feathers of the fowl. Later in the day when we were gathered at another friend’s place recounting our exploits for the day, Basketmouth’s little brother walked up from nowhere and said their father was calling all of us. See gobe! We knew instantly that we had been caught and it was due to Basketmouth’s negligence.
The first thing the old man said when he saw us was “O Bright, you have eaten my heart.” We fought back laughter, fearing a double dose of whatever punishment we had coming. Oh! We teased Basketmouth and his brother Godwin with that line afterwards. We escaped without punishment. Thank God for his beautiful mum who pleaded on our behalf because she loved us all like her own. Patrick and I strolled further down town to the secondary school we attended and had a good laugh imitating Daddy Showkey, who was our senior in school and was always walking around the school premises, wearing bathroom slippers. His uniform was never tucked in but he was always punishing us for ‘flying’ our uniforms. The junior students dreaded him like hell. We talked about how the late Evangelist Sunny Okosuns was said to have been a very playful boy in one of the public primary schools in the town. On our way to the prison yard, we passed by the house where Rev. Kris Okotie grew up.
We talked about life in the prison barracks and how being the son of the chief warder of the maximum security prison gave me the opportunity to meet very influential Nigerians in the prison yard. I remember my dad taking me to say hello to General Shehu Yar’Adua one evening after his lawn tennis game. I watched him play lawn tennis almost every evening in the yard in his impeccable white shorts and T-shirt. And there were always a handful of prisoners helping with the stray balls. I witnessed the General yell at an overzealous prisoner who dashed into the court unnecessarily to retrieve a loose ball.
I also told my friend how Major Al Mustapha jokingly asked me what crime I had committed to be in the yard. I quickly informed him that I was the son of the chief warder. Till date, Major Al Mustapha is regarded as the best thing to have happened to the inmates of Kirikiri Maximum Security Prison by the inmates. He uplifted the spirits of the inmates by sponsoring various activities in the prison yard. He sponsored the prison football team and helped so many of the inmates gain their freedom. I always saw him seated by the side of the field cheering the players. Sometimes in the company of General Bamaiyi and Colonel Gwadabe, who were also inmates at the time. Other high profile inmates in the yard at that time were Fred Ajudua and Ade Bendel. Ade Bendel also rocked the prison yard with his swag. While other inmates wore ordinary prison uniforms, his was made of jeans and a well tailored shirt to match. They loved him like crazy for his benevolence. He built a hall for the prisoners and invited Basketmouth to perform. Basketmouth was scared to go alone and he asked me to accompany him, which I did.
We talked about life outside the barracks when my dad retired. How Yakubu Aiyegbeni moved in with a friend living in my compound. We always ‘yabbed’ him as he walked about the compound with his big ‘yansh.’ Till date, we are still amazed how he played so brilliantly and effortlessly with such a body size. Sunday Oliseh was a member of our senior football team. Members of the junior team were made to pick balls while the senior team trained. Coach Fanny Amun came to town at different times to plead with the father of a member of our senior team to play for him. That happened after a game the senior team of the town played against the national under 17 team, coached by Fanny Amun.
We also talked about how Victor Okechukwu Agali, who was known in Kirikiri Town and Satellite Town as “Okey Banana” made it from hawking bananas in the streets to playing football for Schalke 04 in Germany. And how happy we were collecting tips from Samson Siasia to watch over his car whenever he visited his brother who was doing time in prison. We talked about how we used to listen to team mates laugh about how they tortured Osaze Odemwingie while they played football at the Pepsi Academy. Back then, every player in our team had a crush on Ann Echiejine, the first goalie for the Falcons. She was a member of the town’s female football team. She joined us in training regularly and she became better for it. It seemed training with the male team improved her skills tremendously. We were always very happy to have body contact with her on the pitch.
I got back home that night, played a compilation CDs of old Nigerian reggae music and slept with the thought of how Victor Essiet got married to the late Becky Umanah, a girl from Kirikiri Town and they both became The Mandators.
The shocking ‘checklist’ for picking up women posted online by California ‘dating guru’ Julien Blanc
Controversial 'pick up artist' Julien Blanc has posted a domestic abuse chart on his Twitter page calling it a 'checklist' for 'how to make her stay'.
The diagram was originally designed by a domestic abuse charity to help women identify when they are being abused, and has sections entitled 'use male privilege' and 'use isolation'.
The post, which has now been hidden online, came as minister Lynne Featherstone urged Home Secretary Theresa May to ban Blanc from coming to Britain. He is due to be in this country on November 21 to host a seminar on pick up techniques, but an online petition calling for him to be denied entry has already attracted 120,000 signatures. Mr Blanc who made a name for himself by being what he describes as an 'executive coach' at a company called Real Social Dynamics, which he calls an 'international leader in dating advice'.
It promises customers the chance to 'witness dating coaches attract beautiful women in live demonstrations'.
But videos and pictures of Blanc in action suggest he encourages men to harass women with the aim of having sex with them.
A video of one of his seminar in Japan shows him saying that 'white men... can do what you want' in Tokyo, suggesting that men grab women's heads and thrust them towards their crotch.
Sarah Green, from the End Violence Against Women Coalition, said: 'His so-called pick up coaching promotes behaviour amounting to sexual harassment and sexual assault.See his pic below
A 91-year-old woman in Poland was declared dead November 6 and sent to a funeral home, only to wake up 11 hours later in cold storage, CNN’s Polish affiliate TVN reported. Now she’s home and doing fine.
The doctor went to the home of Janina Kolkiewicz in the town of Ostrow Lubelski on November 6 after her family said she’d stopped breathing, TVN reported.
“I checked the pulse on the forearm artery, carotid artery also,” the doctor told TVN.
“I listened to the heart, to the breathing. I also examined the pupils. There were no reflexes. Typical symptoms of death.”
The doctor signed the death certificate, and Kolkiewicz’s family began planning services, according to TVN.
Then the funeral home called.
Authorities are trying to find out what happened.
“We are investigating whether the doctor exposed the woman to imminent danger of loss of life, as the lady was moved to a funeral home and kept in cold storage,” Beata Syk-Jankowska, a spokeswoman for the prosecutor’s office in Lublin, told TVN.

A mum-of-five arranged to have her disabled husband murdered - then had a THREESOME with his killers.
Evil Joanna Grabowsk has been sentenced to life in jail after plotting the death of her charity worker husband Piotr.
Joanna Grabowski was sentenced to 25 years in jail
Jacek Pawalak and Lukasz Kaminski pounced on wheelchair-bound Piotr then strangled him with a belt, a court heard.
Grabowski, 30, wanted Piotr dead because he refused her demands to allow her to bring a lover back to their home in Olsztyn, Poland.
And a court heard how she had sex with both his killers immediately after the savage murder. Grabowski met caring Piotr while he was a member of the Catholic aid charity Caritas – a group that was financially supporting the mum and her five children.
They married a short while later and despite Piotr becoming a stepfather to her children, Joanna began seeing other people.
Tragic Piotr was killed because he refused to allow his wife to bring a lover home
It was then she told her husband, who was confined to a wheelchair, that she had met another man and wanted to bring him to the family home.
Piotr refused leaving scheming Joanna to arrange for her lover Pawalak, 42, and his pal Kaminski, 31, to murder her husband.
Piotr’s body was discovered by passers-by who noticed his empty chair and found him lying dead close-by.
Lukasz Kaminski and Jacek Pawlak were allegedly rewarded with a sordid sex session
The trio’s plot was unravelled by police who poured through phone records before finally extracting a confession.
Joanna was jailed for 25 years and her five children have been taken into care.
Pawalak and Kaminski will be sentenced after pending reports.
