The Graduate Unemployed Nurses and Midwives Association (GUNMA) has threatened to embark on a nationwide demonstration.
According to the group, the government has failed to provide clearance for their posting, hence their decision.
GUNMA’s leaders argued that their situation has not changed even after a series of engagements with the ministry of health and the president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
