The coalition of unemployed Private Nurse clinical Assistants on Monday 30th September, 2019, besieged the premises of the Ministry of Health (MOH) demanding to be posted to health facilities in the country.
Clad in a red armed band, the aggrieved unemployed Private Nurse Assistants revealed that, the ministry came out with a statement middle of this year claiming to have employed all private graduate nurses but only employed degree and diploma nurses leaving the certificate nurses who completed between 2012-2016.
Speaking to Ernestina Afeke of Hot 93.9FM, the public Relations Officer(PRO) of the coalition of unemployed Private Nurse Assistants, Patrick Aseidu accused the ministry of health of not being truthful to them:
“Yes, from the look of things, we can clearly see that the Ministry is not being truthful…though the Ministry has urged us to wait because they are still awaiting clearance from the Ministry of Finance, we can no longer sit at home …they need to post us because we are also Ghanaians..” he told Ernestina Afeke
“.We will continue to put pressure on Ministry by besieging the premises until they post us,” he added.
