But the police have said they are unable to provide security for the nurses and hence their demonstration should be postponed to September 22.

The spokesperson for the Ghana Nurses and Midwives Trainees Association, Gideon Alale Akuob has expressed his disappointment with the police.

“We had given the Police three weeks’ notice of our intention to embark on this peaceful march and we have just been denied at the nick of time when people have travelled from far and near in preparation only to be told there has been some last minute arrangement which the police will not be able to provide security for us…we have now been given September 22, 2016 to embark on this march”, he added.
