Unemployed nurses sleep at Health ministry

The Coalition of Unemployed Bonded Diploma Nurses spent Monday night at the Ministry of Health and have promised to spend two more nights before moving to the Flagstaff House on Wednesday to picket and demand for their appointment letters.

Members of the coalition from across the country who are currently in Accra, claimed they have been out of job for two years since they left school and will only vacate the Health Ministry if their appointment letters are given to them.

“We went to school in order to take employment and take charge of our economic lives but see the frustration they are putting us through. Immediately you complete school and you are done with your service, you have to be posted but we are nine months staying at home. What should we do? What do we feed on?”They asked.

They claimed Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia had disclosed that about 11,000 nurses had been given clearance for employment.

But the nurses said they are skeptical about the Vice President’s remark.

But Public Relations Officer of the Health Ministry Robert Cudjoe on Adom TV appealed to the aggrieved nurses to exercise some restraint whilst the ministry fast track processes of their engagements.

“The ministry is working on it and what I can tell them is to exercise some restraint for us to address their grievances”, he said.

But the nurses say they do not trust the promises of the PRO because that has always been the case since they started agitating last year.
