A group of bonded nurses have in recent developments vented their spleen at the Deputy Ashanti Regional Minister, Madam Elizabeth Agyeman.
The wrath of the aggrieved nurses was rekindled after the minister allegedly disrespected the angry nurses in public, last Wednesday during a demonstration.
The nurses had marched to the minister’s office to protest over their unemployed status but Madam Agyeman, reportedly described the protest by the agitated nurses, as unnecessary.
The nurses, she noted, should have protested in Accra rather than hitting the streets in Kumasi.
According to the minister, key decisions in the country are taken in Accra―the national capital.
Elizabeth Agyeman further slammed the nurses for hitting the street though she had advised against it.
She said, she had earlier urged the nurses not to protest since their grievances were being considered.
She indicated that the nurses’ decision to protest in the absence of the regional minister, Mr. Simon Osei Mensah was out of place.
Though the petition presented to Madam Agyeman was received, the aggrieved nurses descended heavily on the minister, describing her as uncaring.
“We have been jobless for long but the minister has showed no concern about their plight,” an aggrieved nurse lamented.
