Director of Human Resource at the Ministry of Health, Dr Akwasi Asabir has described nurses at the Nalerigu Nursing and Midwifery Training College as “ungrateful” health practitioners.
His comment comes after videos and photos in which some students of the training college were seen chanting “JM we’re sorry”.
The students stormed the rally grounds at Nalerigu on Day two of former President John Dramani Mahama’s ‘Thank You Tour’ of the Northeast region, clad in their school uniforms and NDC paraphernalia to “beg” the NDC flagbearer to come back to power.
The purpose of the tour was for John Mahama to interact with the Chiefs, opinion leaders, community members and executives of the NDC in the various constituencies.
But the students, numbering about a hundred stormed the rally grounds holding placards that read, “JM we're sorry, nurses’ need you back” and “Ghana Economy is in coma”, and knelt before the former president amidst wailing.
Dr Akwasi Asabir who was speaking on the issue on NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’ noted that management of the school have rendered an apology to government for the ‘uncultured’ behaviour of their students.
He said the school “do appreciate what government is doing for them” – and described the students act us “unfortunate”.
