Unemployed nurses and midwives in Kumasi protest delays in job postings. Stay updated on developments in the healthcare sector.

In Kumasi, unemployed graduate nurses and midwives rallied on Monday, urging the government to expedite their postings and protesting the delay in obtaining financial clearance for their permanent employment.

The demonstrators, representing graduates from the 2020, 2021, and 2022 cohorts of various public universities and Nursing Training Colleges, voiced their grievances despite limited turnout. Many of these individuals have been compelled to seek alternative employment opportunities due to the prolonged delay in their assignments. Haruna Ibrahim, the President of the Graduate Unemployed Nurses and Midwives Association, lamented that despite assurances of ongoing discussions between the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Finance regarding their clearance, there has been no tangible progress. Furthermore, they suspect that certain individuals are obtaining financial clearance and postings through bribery.

Ibrahim warned that unless their demands are addressed, the association plans to stage protests at the Finance and Health Ministries.

“The feedback we always get is very soon. When we had the first demonstration in Tamale, we were told that the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Finance were meeting to discuss our clearance. The next day we saw a release from the Ministry of Health addressing what we described as ghost officials at the Ministry of Health.

At MoH and MoF, we think that there are people who are giving financial clearance and postings to some of our colleagues who can afford between 5000 and 10000. Immediately they pay, they get posted.”
