|Ghanaian Gov’t to employ over 12,000 nurses from 2017 – Omane Boamah by Idowu Olabode : September 17, 2016, 06:26:36 PM|
The Communications Minister says the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has a lot in store for nurses, nursing students and graduate nurses as there is an employment opportunity for some 12,000 nurses when the party wins the December elections.
Dr Edward Omane Boamah said a project to add some 6,000-beds to hospitals and polyclinics across the country from 2017 by the NDC government would guarantee the above-listed jobs.
There has been a lot of complaints by nursing school graduates who say they have been unemployed after school.
Some are quick to travel abroad where they say their services are much needed because of unemployment in Ghana. Also, they claim they are well paid abroad.
Some nurses have picketed at the Health Ministry in the last few weeks in protest to either not being posted after they graduated or received their salaries for a long time.
Speaking on Health and Education at the manifesto launch of the NDC’s manifesto in Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region, Dr Boamah said President Mahama is determined to do more in the two sectors.
He cited the President's achievements in the health sector including five polyclinics in the Brong Ahafo Region, a 100-bed hospital in the Ashanti Region by the end of 2017 in Tepa and Fomena and other cities as well as the Ridge Hospital project, the Police Hospital, the district hospitals in Madina and Kwabenya all in Accra.
The Eastern Region he said will also have Regional as well as District Hospital.
"The future is far more important than the present to President Mahama," he said adding the President is going to build 35 polyclinics across the country.
Dr Boamah said the NDC believes all men have been created equal thus the President's new 200-60-10 formula in education development to give all equal opportunities across the country.
He said by the end of the Presdient's second term, he would construct 200 Community Day Schools, 30 percent of which are to focus on technical and vocational education.
Sixty percent are to be Community-based schools with 10 out of the 200 schools; one in each Region to be turned into Center of Excellence in Sports.
Extolling the virtues of Mahama’s humble nature he said that will made him an obvious choice in the upcoming elections.
He ended singing "Mungodey Allah, abinda mu ke su Allah ya baamu" [to wit we thank you God for giving us what we want] in Hausa.
