Over 12K Recruited Nurses Still At Home
Over a thousand (12, 000) Registered Nurse Assistant Clinical (RNAC) and Registered Nurse Assistant Preventive (RNAP) are still at home after the Ministry of Health opened a portal for them to apply for recruitment a month before the presidential and parliamentary elections in 2020.
Despite the fact that the ministry of finance had provided financial clearance for their employment, none of the members of the concerned RNAC/RNAPs group had been hired after six months, according to the concerned RNAC/RNAPs group.
“Leadership together with all members of concerned RNAC/RNAPs group 2019 wishes to express our displeasure on the delay in our postings process. For about six months now after accessing the portal, our colleague degree and diploma nurses that we all accessed the portal on the same day have already started work whiles we still rot at home”.
The Public Relations Officer of the concerned RCAC/RNAPs Tenedu Ebenezer in an interview sighted by Opemsuo.com said, “Recent engagement with the Ministry on 11th April 2022 revealed our data is with the MOH and not with the agencies to continue our recruitment process”.
The group, therefore, refuted claims by government officials that all 2019 batch of nurses and Midwives have been posted.
He said members of the group have been home for three years unleashing untold hardship on them.
The group has given a week ultimatum for the ministry to recruit them, failure will lead to massive picketing and subsequently demonstration.
