Jobless nurses, midwives to stage demo in Kumasi to demand postings

The allowance has not been paid since February 2021

The Graduate Unemployed Nurses and Midwives Association is gearing up to stage a protest in Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional capital, to express their frustration with the government’s failure to provide financial clearance and secure permanent employment.

These professionals, who have successfully passed their licensing exams, say they are facing significant livelihood challenges due to the lack of job opportunities.

The protest, slated for Monday (8 April), aims to draw attention to the urgent need for action to address the employment crisis affecting graduate nurses and midwives across the country.

Richard Kusi, the organizer of the group, anticipates a strong turnout from all members as they rally to highlight their grievances.

“We have been in the house for four years and we have done series of follow-ups at the Ministries of Health and Finance, but we are yet to get a response…We met the Ashanti Regional Police Command, and the clearance has been given and so we want all our members to come out and join this campaign”, Kusi stated.

“We just want to get the government to hear our cry, maybe they haven’t heard and so we start the protest at the Center for National Culture and end at the Regional Coordinating Council then we present a petition to the Minister as we pursue our case”, he added.
