Unemployed graduate nurses will on Wednesday, September 14, picket at the Ministry of Health (MoH) following government’s refusal to include them in the recent recruitment list.

According to the group, attempts to get the government to address their concerns have proved futile.

They however express their doubts over the ministry's comments that they are work on their clearance forms, saying they are being deceived because no concrete documents prove that the ministry is working on their clearance as claimed.

The group, numbering about 1,031 warned they will sleep at the premises of the Ministry of Health if their demands are not met.

Speaking on Kumasi-based Ultimate Radio, Chairman of the group, Benson Amoako noted that they will not relent on their decision if the government does not respond to their plea.

“We live in a country where even the working class are struggling to survive, so we have become another burden to society. We have some of our colleagues who graduated way back in 2011 and are still home,” he said.

He questioned why the government is uninteresting in posting them to the various health facilities in the country which he say are currently under-staffed.

The group entails graduates from universities in the country both private and public that run nursing programmes including the University of Health and Allied Sciences in Ho.
