Ghanaian Unemployed Nurses issues government ultimatum to resolve Job issues by katty : February 11, 2018, 08:01:43 PM
Coalition of unemployed nurses in the Northern Zone has given government up to February 16, 2018 to employ them or face agitations.

2016 Northen Zonal Executives of the Nurse Assistant Clinical (NAC) and Nurse Assistant Preventive (NAP) organized a press conference in Tamale to remind president Akufo Addo and the Minister of Health about their unemployment issues.

The batch comprises of a total population of over six thousand graduates with the Nurse Assistant clinical and Nurse Assistant Preventive.

They lamented of being the first to have completed their training without allowances after paying huge sums of monies as school fees during their course of training and have therefore rendered 40% health care service delivery to mother Ghana during their training without remuneration.

"We the executives of the north, therefore seek that the government compensate our batch with immediate posting"

"Our continues stay at home is more harmful and can lead to more harm if we find ourselves in the facilities some day after staying longer without practicing", the group lamented.

Meanwhile, the group have presented the following statements purported to be contained in their admission letters.

1. Your acceptance to this offer to train automatically "BONDS" you tonserve the government for four (4) years after completion fo training or in default pay a fine . 2. As a condition of your acceptance as a trainee, u are required to sign a bond to complete the course satisfactorily and to server the government of Ghana for a period of FIVE YEARS (5YEARS) after successfully completing your studies. In default you would be required to pay to the government the cost of training with interest at the prevailing rate.

"We are therefore by this press conference entreating your high office to respond to our grievances and take necessary steps to post us without any further delay and to the admiration of these professionals and the nation as a whole by the 16th February 2018 to avoid agitation".

Below is a full copy of the speech PRESS RELEASE

DELAY IN POSTING OF NEWLY QUALIFIED NURSES, 2016 BATCH OF THE NURSE ASSISTANT CLINICAL (NAC) AND THE NURSES ASSISTANT PREVENTIVE (NAP)

The Northen Zonal Executives (NZE) of the 2016 batch of the Nurse Assistant Clinical (NAC) and Nurse Assistant Preventive (NAP) ,wish to remind H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo and Hon. Minister of Health that the 2016 batch of NAC and NAP is still at home in agony without postings . The batch has a total population of over six thousand graduates. Comprising of Nurse Assistant clinical and Nurse Assistant preventive.

We are the first Nurses to have completed training without trainee allowance and have paid huge sums of monies as school fees during our course of training.

Meanwhile we have rendered 40% health care service delivery to mother Ghana during our training without remuneration We the executives of the north, therefore seek that the government compensate our batch with immediate posting. Our continues stay at home is more harmful and can lead to more harm if we find ourselves in the facilities some day after staying longer without practising.

Making matters worse is the fact that, we are the only batch known to have stayed at home for more than a year without employment, that is we have spend 15 months being at home.

Meanwhile, we have been registered by Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and have our Auxilary Identification Numbers(AIN) which is subjected to yearly renewals , requiring certain working experience and money, but up till date we are left unemployed regardless of the promise by H.E president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo on …September, 2017 that we should be added to 2018 budget at a conference with GNMTA and our national executives and the promise of Hon. Minister of Health on the 9th Octoer,2017 at our induction grounds that, “the only compensation we can give to you is to employ you immediately after your induction “ since we did not enjoy any form of allowance during our training. Also, the director of Human Resource HR(MOH), GNMTA and Two representatives of NAP and NAC had a meeting at the ministry on 14th December, 2017 and we were told he forwarded our names for clearance and we will be posted immediately clearance is done.

Moreover, on our follow ups to the ministry, all the promises turned the opposite. The story now is that we are not bonded. Meanwhile, we have the following statements on our admission letters.

IT READS;

1. Your acceptance to this offer to train automatically "BONDS" you to serve the government for four (4) years after completion fo training or in default pay a fine .

2. As a condition of your acceptance as a trainee, u are required to sign a bond to complete the course satisfactorily and to server the government of Ghana for a period of FIVE YEARS (5YEARS) after successfully completing your studies.

In default you would be required to pay to the government the cost of training with interest at the prevailing rate. Now the question we the executives on behalf of the association want ot ask H. E the president of the republic of Ghana and the Ministry is ; why didn't they tell us this since 2014 when our training began but rather at this unexpected time when we are anxiously waiting for our posting.

This unexpected mishap has ignited anxiety, frustration and suffering among us , such that we have lost hope in the gentle approach of the government towards our plight and has called for agitation.

We are therefore by this press conference entreating your high office to respond to our grievances and take necessary steps to post us without any further delay and to the admiration of these professionals and the nation as a whole by the 16th February 2018 to avoid agitation. .

We hope to hear from you as soon as possible. Thank you Yours sincerely
