YEN.com.gh is in possession of photos of students of Jirapa Nursing Training School in the Upper West Region, who allegedly abandoned classes to see Former President John Mahama.
Mahama, as part of his campaign tour of the northern regions, took the opportunity to pass through the school on Tuesday, October 9, 2018.
According to a report by MyNewsGH.com, the excited students allegedly ditched classes to catch a glimpse of him, and pose for photos with him as well.
YEN.com.gh understands that some members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) then took the opportunity to chide the government for disappointing the nurses.
The Jirapa Nursing/Midwifery Training College in the Upper West Region was established in 1952 and added up in 1954 by the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary, a Catholic congregation spearheaded by Reverend Sister Cyprian Mary Swales.
The school started Qualified Registered Nursing from 1954 – 1969; the Enrolled General Nursing from 1969 – 1980; State Registered Nursing (SRN) from 1981 – 1999; Registered General Nursing from 1999 to date. The school currently has 840 students, 27 tutors.
Former John Dramani Mahama kick-started his three-day campaign tour of the Upper West region 3 days ago, paying a visit to the Bagbin family to mourn with them at Sombo, over the demise of Luke Bazin Bagbin, a brother of Alban Sumanu Bagbin.
