President John Mahama has assured unemployed nurses that his administration is working assiduously  to expand the country's health sector in order to employ them soon.

Scores of unemployed nurses on Wednesday, April 27, hit the streets to protest against delays in their postings.

According to the aggrieved nurses, the Ministry of Health has delayed the processes involved in getting them cleared and posted to the various health facilities for the past eight months.

However, President Mahama, who is in the Brong Ahafo region with his “Accounting to the People” tour said his administration has began the process of recruiting the bonded nurses.

"Every year financial clearance is given for the number of nurses based on a survey of what the need is and so every year we take in those nurses but I have asked that we give priority to the nurses who are trained in public institutions.

"We are expanding the health sector as quickly as we can and as we expand the health sector we will continue to absorb more nurses. We have a net freeze on the Civil Service and the Local service but we don’t have a freeze on the health and education sector," President Mahama noted.
