Angry Preventive Nurses Storm Parliament
A couple of Assistant Preventive and Nurses Assistants yet to be posted since 2019 have picketed at Parliament to demand their postings.
According to them, life has become misery.
The nurses picketed Parliament today Monday, July 25, 2022, demanding that Parliament Select Committee seek answers from the Ministry of Health on the delays in having them posted.
The unemployed nurses were seen carrying placards with various inscriptions such as “How can our posting slot be sold to our juniors”?
The unemployed nurses had earlier presented a petition to the Speaker of Parliament and the Ranking Member on the Parliamentary Select Committee on Health, Kwabena Mintah Akandoh, who is also the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament for Juaboso Constituency in the Western North Region.
Speaking to the media, the leader of the group, Victor Kofi Dzikunu, expressed concerns about why their juniors have been posted over them.
“How can we be told we have been cleared for postings only to have ‘our juniors posted instead?” he said.
