The ministry of health has today pleaded with the angry unemployed nurses who had threatened to demonstrate at the Flagstaff House, should government fails to finalize their clearance to hold on with their planned demonstration.
The Coalition of Unemployed Nurses last Tuesday, 12 April 2016 threatened to embark on a demonstration that will see them occupying the seat of government, if the state fails to post them to the various hospitals across the country.
According to the spokesperson for the coalition, Adams Masawudu, letters written to the Ministry of Health since January, 2016 had not yielded any fruitful outcome.
He added that they have decided to demonstrate and occupy the official seat of government to press home their demand.
“Government was quick to cancel our allowance immediately we finished the service but has not employed us. Some of us are married and we have kids and we have to take care of our families, but how do we do that if we are unemployed?” he asked.
Speaking on Agoo fm’s news analysis program ‘NA WO KAA NO SEN’ on Tuesday 12th April with Abena Opokua, Mr Adamssaid, they will demonstrate against government till their demands are met.
