Unemployed graduate nurses threaten demo after 7-day ultimatum

Nurses MOH

Members of the Unemployed Registered Graduate Nurses have given the Ministry of Health a one-week ultimatum to give clearance for their postings.

The group says all efforts to get responses on their postings have proven futile.

The National Chairman of the Unemployed Registered Graduate Nurses, Benson Amoako, has alleged that the Ministry of Health has since 2011 failed to post graduates from both public and private universities.

He further alleged that the Ministry has circulated a communiqué to health directorates that prohibits graduate nurses from tertiary institutions the opportunity from purchasing posting forms.

He explained that his members have a copy of the communiqué.

He said the situation is frustrating them and makes them feel like they are being denied their fundamental rights to serve their country after four years of study.

Northern Regional Chairman, Halidu Salifu, was unhappy the Ministry was using delay in financial clearance as an excuse

This they find unacceptable.

Mr Salifu questioned why the Ministry has not been able to give them any tangible reason why they are not being allowed to purchase posting forms.

He called on government to come to their aid since they are being treated like non-citizens despite the skills they acquired in the university.

He said they feel sidelined by the Ministry of Health but warned that they will picket at the Ministry if it fails to meet their ultimatum.
