Nurses in the University of Portharcourt Teaching Hospital (UPTH) returned to work in Uniforms today after going to work in muftis last week in protest of non-payment of their uniform allowance. The nurses had protested against the non payment of their uniform allowance by going to work for almost a week dressed in mufties. The healthcare providers say they have not been paid their uniform allowance by the hospital management for the past six (6) years from 2012 to 2017. According to the civil service rule No.130127 nurses and midwives are to be paid uniform allowances.
The nurses resumed work today in Uniforms, as reports indicate that they have been paid one year uniform allowance out of the six years being owed. They said they will adopt further dialogue in getting the other five years owed allowances paid for.
Well this is interesting. It is not only nurses that wear uniform o. Most students now wear uniform to ras departmental wear. May be all those students who wear uniform should be paid allowances by their departments. So how much do you want for wearing mauve shirt and black trousers to school, I dey ask mass communication students of a particular tertiary institution? You know now.

Nigeria.E get wetin we no go see?? Since it is stipulated by law that they should be paid uniform allowances the government should toe the line and pay up.No excuses

Government should please try pay up for d remaining five years uniform allowance.
its risky for the Nurses to go on a protest and not putting on there uniform it may engage the lifes of the students
Our government should have symphaty,some have families to take care of
