Some 937 unemployed nurses have picketed the Ghana Health Service (GHS) over the government’s failure to post them after completing their national service.

The nurses claim that they are losing their skills following the continued stay at home without practicing.

Leader of the group, James Aguri, speaking in an interview with Chief Jerry Forson, host of Ghana Yensom on Accra 100.5FM on Tuesday March 28, said: “We completed school in February 2015 and we have finished our national service in August 2016, but it’s been eight months after our service and we have not been posted. We have served the government and the Ministry of Health with five petitions but they have not responded to them.

“Anytime we come to see the Minister, he refuses to meet us. Anytime we come he dodges us, he doesn’t want to meet us. We are now tired, we have sat home for long and we are losing our skills.

“And so today we are picketing at the Ghana Health Service against the government.”
