A group of 153 Ghanaians who were trained and certified as medical doctors in foreign countries has been said to still be without postings to respective hospitals for their housemanship.
Speaking to YEN.com.gh, one of the affected young doctors who prefer not to be named stated that they were part of a larger group of 500, out of which 347 received their postings.
The narrator further explained that this has been the third year since they graduated from their respective foreign institutions since 2019 but their letters are still pending.
"We went through the processes we are supposed to go through, now it's time to be posted but only 347 doctors out of over 500 doctors were posted," the young doctor said to YEN.com.gh
According to the doctor who showed evidence to back her claims, the most uncomfortable part of waiting for their letters is that they do not receive adequate information from authorities on what to expect.
"We need them to tell us what the issue at hand is. Inasmuch as we want to be POSTED, knowing even if it's after a year we will be sorted out gives us inner peace. Answers like 'we are working on it; are not helping", they said.
Away from that, Fathia Ayodele Kareem, a young Ghanaian medical doctor who attended Wesley Girls' Senior High School from 2006 to 2009 has recounted her story as a Muslim student.
According to Fathia in a narration on her Facebook handle, there were many good things instilled in her in the school for which she is grateful but the extent of religious intolerance left much to be desired.
"I was the second person in my family to attend Gey Hey so I had been informed that Muslims were not allowed to pray. I was also passed over for prefectship which I believe was because I am Muslim", she mentioned.
