The Coalition of Unemployed Nurses and Midwives in the Upper West Region say they would be left with no option than to picket at the Flagstaff House should government fail to expedite action on their employment and subsequent postings.

Expressing the view of the group, secretary of the Coalition, Abu Stephen Sunbamaala explained that all nurses have run out of patience stating that granted government does not heed to their call within a week, they would be moved to take drastic action.

The unemployed nurses and midwives further explained that due to “a train and retain” bond they were made to sign before their enrollment into the various nursing training colleges in the region, they are unable to get employment in private health facilities. Government has therefore been given a  one-week ultimatum to address their concerns.
