In a statement, the aggrieved nurses called out President Akufo-Addo, the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Finance over the delay in payment.

They said some of their colleagues are even yet to be taken through the biometric registration, with all discussions to resolve the issue proving futile.

The hungry and suffering Nurses and Midwives have come to the realisation that the Akufo-Addo government has deliberately decided to treat us this way and we consider it as a resort for incompetence and mismanagement.
