NDC dares NPP to publish names of just 5,000 nurses posted so far

Former deputy Minister for Employment  Baba Jamal has dared the New Patriotic party (NPP) to publicly publish the names and place of postings of the 11,000 nurses who were said to have been given clearance by the Ministry of Health, disclosed earlier by the Vice President, Dr Mahamadu Bawumia.

The Coalition of Unemployed Bonded Diploma Nurses on Monday stormed the Ministry of Health to demand clearance for employment.

According to members of the coalition, they are yet to be posted two years after the completion of their programme.

The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia had revealed that about 11,000 nurses had been given clearance for employment.

But the nurses are skeptical about the Vice President’s remark.

Speaking to Citi News some of them stressed that, “our concern is we need our clearance. No clearance, No going home. They claimed that they have posted 11,000 nurses; we want to see the clearance of the 11,000 they were referring to because we are the very people who are supposed to be given the clearance but we are in the house. And we are bonded with government so there is no way we could go and work anywhere…”

But Spokesperson for the Health Ministry, Robert Cudjoe, is urging the aggrieved nurses to remain calm since letters are being issued to the nurses.

He stressed that the sector has so many categories hence the reason for the setback in their posting process.

“We are still issuing letter to all of them. We have various institutions and the postings are ongoing, the nursing sector has many categories and so they should give us some time.

“We met the minister some time ago and they were given two weeks but we are not happy they don’t have jobs. The government is aware and putting things in place…” he said to on Adom FM’s Morning Show “Dwaso Nsem” Tuesday.

But according to Baba Jamal, the NPP are telling lies in the face of Ghanaians adding that 11,000 nurses have not been posted anywhere hence he gives government up to Friday to prove their point.

The former Member of Parliament for Akwatia noted that, there exist records and therefore if such moves have been made, he dares the ruling NPP to publish by record the nurses who have already been posted and commenced work.

“I would urge them to come out and publish just 5000 of the nurses they have given clearance and posted. It’s far from the truth, it is a complete lie and so I am daring them” he stressed.
