Unemployed professional nurses from the College of Health in Kintampo are threatening to throng the Flagstaff House in large numbers if the Police does not release some members of their group who were arrested on Wednesday during a demonstration at the Flagstaff House.

 The group staged a demonstration at the Flagstaff House to press home demands for their postings to designated health facilities for work.

However, they were allegedly harassed by the Police and an unknown number of graduates from the College of Health in Kintampo were arrested.

The group of nursing graduates, who come from different colleges across the country have remained jobless  after two years of completing their nursing training.

A member of the group Philip Davor in an interview said they were merely at the Flagstaff House to deliver a petition to government, and not to cause havoc. He however, sounded a word of caution to the Ghana Police Service to immediately release their members or have a large demonstration on their hands.

“We did not even get to the Flagstaff House and they were picked by the Police. Either they release those guys or they come back and pick all of us. They said unlawful assembly, what is the use of unlawful assembly when we are in the house suffering? What has the government done about us? They should come back and take all of us, that will rather help because if they take some we will go back again.”

In an interview with CITI FM, Philip Davor said “We are sending a message to the Police commander that he should tell his boys to come back and pick all of us. If he, the IGP has paid school fees for his children and after four years, they come back home and become a burden on him and he feels it is good so he will pick us, he should come back and pick all of us,”.
