Members of the Graduate Unemployed Nurses and Midwives Association have issued a notice to picket the Ministry of Health (MoH) on 21 October 2019 to demand their immediate employment.

The association is made up of public-trained nurses and midwives who graduated in 2017 and 2018 and have been home unemployed.

“We are going to the Ministry of Health with all our parents as well as our mattresses and mosquito nets and will only leave there the time or day our financial clearance will be released to us,” the group said in a statement signed by the General Secretary Achire Abraham.

The culture of unemployed graduate nurses picketing and demonstrating for financial clearance before employment has become a ritual in the country in recent years.
