Some unemployed nurses who call themselves bonded Diploma nurses and midwives who gathered at the Obra Spot at the Kwame Nkrumah circle in Accra say they intend to go to the Jubilee House to petition government to expedite action on their employment.
The nurses who are being prevented by the Police from marching to the Jubilee House to register their displeasure to government for employing their counterparts who are the General Nurses and ignored they the unemployed midwives.
They are calling on government to clear them so they can be employed. But the Greater Accra Regional Police Commander, Kwesi Sarpong told GBC’s Radio Ghana that the Police are not preventing the protestors from presenting their petition to the Jubilee House.
After hours of misunderstanding between angry bonded nurses and the police over the route for a demonstration scheduled to take place Monday morning the police have offered the nurses a take-it-or-leave-it option.
Instead of having the entire demonstrators marching and picketing at the Jubilee House, the seat of government, the police have given an option for six leaders of the demonstrators to go and present a petition to the president at the Flagstaff House, according to reports.
The leaders of the demonstration are conferring with the members to accept the option but it appears they have lost control over their members.
