Isua said: “we resolved that funds be drawn from our Internally Generated Revenue to finance the upward reviewed package of staff but to our greatest surprise, nothing was done since then. “When we came on board as union in 2013, we took a look at the allowances of staff and discovered it was low compared with other agencies that we enjoy same salary scale with.” 

Isua said the union had complained to the ministry of health and NAFDAC management, “but up till today, nothing has been done.”
