After several months of going unpaid for the monies due them, the Ghana Nurses & Midwives Association wrote to the ministry of Health to seek for some answers. This led to a meeting held weeks ago, this was what MOH had to say:
In a conversation with the Financial secretary of the Ghana Nursing & Midwifery Trainees Association, He entreats all trainees to exercise patience. He also stated that in their last meeting with the Ministry of Health (MOH), they assured them that payment will commence soon.
The Ministry also explained that the delay is due to the fact that they had to enroll the level 100s into the scheme. This however they said was done and that a date is being fixed for the disbursement of fund.
Some students how ever have registered their displeasure in the system since they haven’t received the money due them for almost 12 months. As to whether their opinions/reactions can influence the decision of the Ministry that I don’t know.
