Coalition of Bonded Unposted Allied Health Professionals is set to resume its picketing at the Ministry of Health and the Flagstaff House, after suspending the move a week ago.
A release from the group and signed by its President, Solomon Yeboah said: “On Monday, 22nd May, 2017. We will ” move our beds and luggage” to the premises of MOH and FLAGSTAFF HOUSE, Accra till we see evidence of our financial Clearance on paper and date of our employment.”
In response to an earlier action taken by the group through picketing of the MoH in demand for a financial clearance, the Deputy Health Minister, Tina Mensah told the protesters “Your issues have been heard, so we will work on it and give you a feedback in a week’s time”.
But the group contends they have not secured any official correspondence from the Ministry as agreed upon after the expected time for the feedback ended on Monday, 15th May, 2017.
“We made follow ups with calls to the offices of the stake holders at the ministry of health but no “appropriate” response has been given to our plight towards our financial clearance with immediate postings.
“We then followed up with three Executive members but the Minister or any of his deputies were absent. We however had the attention of the Director for Human Resources at MOH. He said “we are still working on it so you will hear from us”; without giving us any precise time.”
“We have therefore activated our PICKETING (which was suspended due to the promise of the Ministry) at the MOH and to the FLAGSTAFF HOUSE, Accra.”
