Nigeria labour Congress has urged the Jigawa State House of Assembly to stop the process of passing the bill on Jigawa State Health Insurance Scheme into law.
The Chairman of Jigawa chapter of NLC, SANUSI ALHASSAN, made the call in a statement issued in Dutse.
SANUSI said that the organized labour was calling for the suspension of further action on the bill, following observation that that the original copy sent to the house had been tampered with.
He commended the state government for sustaining the free maternal and child healthcare programme for pregnant women and children under the age of five.
NLC chairman thanked the state government for initiating the construction of 50 housing units in each of the 27 local government areas of the state.
