The Deputy Minister for Health, Tina Naa Ayeley Mensah says unemployed private nurses must at least appreciate efforts by the Nana Addo-led government to get them working.

According to her, their actions in recent times to picket and demand employment is “unfortunate” - she however described them as “ungrateful” health workers.

“From 2017 to this month, this government has employed a sizable number of nurses. No government has been able to do that so they should be grateful to us,” she said in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’. 

The Coalition of Unemployed Private Nurses (COUPN) has given the government a 10-day ultimatum to find its members jobs or face a demonstration.

The group has accused the government of gross discrimination in securing its members jobs.

The aggrieved nurses, who said they have been home since 2012, explained that they have participated in several discussions with the ministries involved to get their grievances addressed but to no avail.

The irate nurses have subsequently given the government a 10-day ultimatum for appropriate responses to their situation or else they will embark on a series of demonstrations across the country.
