Nurses and Midwives Trainees to go demonstration over nonpayment of arrears


The Ghana Nurses and Midwives Trainees Association says it will embark on a nationwide demonstration if the government fails to pay them their allowances, which have been in arrears for over nine months now.

The leadership of the Association has therefore issued a ten-day ultimatum to the government to settle all arrears owed its members.

The National Vice President of the Association, Shadrach Kyei Adu-Gyamfi in an interview with GBC News said, all attempts to get the government and the Health Ministry to pay them have yielded no results hence their current decision.

According to Mr. Adu-Gyamfi, the non-payment of the allowance continues to negatively impact members.

“Non-payment affects the psychology of trainees,” he stated.

The Ghana Nurse and Midwife Trainees Association (GNMTA) is the official umbrella association of all nursing students and midwives in the Republic of Ghana.
