Unemployed nurses vow to stalk president

26 April 2016, 21:56

Accra – At least 2 000 unemployed nurses in Ghana have threatened to stalk President John Dramani Mahama, as they seek to highlight their plight, reports said on Tuesday.

According to Joy News, the angry nurses claimed that they would also be stalking his deputy, Kwesi Amissah-Arthur, as well as the minister of health and his deputy.

Over 2 000 nurses across the west African country are without jobs, three years after graduating from school.  

The nurses said all attempts to gain employment at the government hospitals had failed.

Adom online reported that a representative body of the nurses, the Coalition of Unemployed Nurses and Midwives, had repeatedly called on government to fast-track the posting of its members to the various hospitals across the country.

The coalition claimed that during their time of study, the nurses signed a contract that required them to work for the government for at least five years. However, the government had since delayed the processes involved in getting them cleared and posted to the various health facilities.

The coalition said the nurses had had enough of being lied to by government.

"Wherever his Excellency the president goes across the length and breadth of the country, we will make sure our presence is felt. We will go and welcome him with our placards and our uniforms to remind him about the commitment of government to the bonded nurses," Adams Masahudu, the spokesperson of the coalition, was quoted as saying.
