The Graduate Unemployed Nurses and Midwives Association has leveled accusations against the Ministry of Health, alleging that it’s resorting to underhanded methods to assign some of its members by imposing extra fees.

Expressing discontent, the group criticized both the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Finance for their failure to secure financial clearance and permanent job opportunities for trained nurses and midwives.

Speaking to Citi News, the association’s general secretary, Atta Asante, urged the Ministry of Health to accelerate the processes of assigning the nurses.

“Some of us are being ejected from our homes because we are not being able to pay our rent. Some of us are sick. Some of us have different financial burdens. We have done a lot of things, but nobody, nothing is coming out of it.

“Any day, any time you go to the ministries, what they tell you is, go soon, it will come. We don’t know how soon this soon is coming. What is worse in the matter is, some of our colleagues are being posted underground. You ask them and they will tell you I had a colleague who took me GH¢5,000, GH¢6,000, GH¢7,000 to get me this posting.

“You get to find out that even in 2022 those who are just about to finish their national service, some of them are in the wards working. Meanwhile, the 2020 batch are still in the house jobless.”
