Ghana: Unemployed Nurses Demonstrate Over Delayed Posting by katty : September 06, 2018, 02:49:44 PM
A group of unemployed nurses in the Upper West Region have embarked on a peaceful demonstration to express their displeasure over government’s continuous delay in giving them financial clearance to pave way for them to be employed.

The group, numbering about 300 went through the principal streets of Wa and finally converged on the forecourt of the Upper West regional coordinating council where they presented a petition to the regional minister, Alhassan Suleimana.

One of the leaders of the group, Saeed Mohammed Alhassan, who presented the petition on behalf of his colleagues said they were part of over 2, 600 nurses who completed their training but are yet to be posted.


He said the delay in granting them financial clearance is impacting negatively on their profession as many of them are compelled to engage in menial jobs for survival.

“….These group of nurses and midwives completed in 2016 but are left at home languishing with their skills decaying. We all know that nursing is practical and a continuous process”.

The group has given government a 3-week ultimatum to address their concerns or they will be compelled to march to the presidency in Accra to drum home their demands.

A similar demonstration took place in the Ashanti Regional capital on Wednesday.
