We Have Become Burden To Our Families; Please Post Us - Ghanaian Nurse Cries To Government

A Ghanaian nurse who has completed her nursing training awaiting her posting has been recorded on camera crying uncontrollably to the government of Ghana. This is a young lady probably between the ages of 20 and 30 years. She was seen in the video pleading with the President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to have mercy on her and her colleagues and post them to their respective stations to work.

One cannot tell how many years she and her classmates have stayed in the house after completing their nursing training but she stated that they have become a burden to their families. The lady explained that some of her colleagues took loans to finance their nursing training hoping that they will be posted immediately after school to work and repay their loans. However, this didn't happen. They have now burrowed money from families and friends to the extent that they have no one to tend to again.

The nurse also explained that some of her colleagues are having children and that they have to provide feeding fees and school fees. The problem is that they cannot even take care of their children because they are not working. She, therefore, pleaded with the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Health and President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to do everything in their power to post them to take this burden from them.

The lady went down on her knees to beg authorities to have mercy on them. Her friends in their uniforms were also seen at this place. The place they were recorded seems like the Ministry of Finance. Some Ghanaians after coming across this video said that this is so sad. However, now that the government has decided to go to IMF for support, it might be too late for them.
