The Rotational Nurses and Midwives Association (RNMA) has refused to rescind its decision to embark on a demonstration on June 30 despite being invited by the Ministry of Health (MoH) to discuss the payment of more than 12-month allowance arrears of its members.

On June 9, 2023, the association released a statement that its members will embark on a demonstration for the second time to express their disgust and displeasure with the failure of the government to pay their” salaries.”


According to the executives of the association, 10,975 rotational nurses and midwives across the country will be finishing their one-year mandatory national service come the 30th of this month, and still, their financial clearance has not been released by the Ministry of Finance for their documents to be processed, and placed on the mechanized payroll to enable the Controller and Accountant-General’s Department to effect payment.

The President of the Association, Jasper Dzorkah, in an interview monitored by The Ghana Report on Citi FM, said everything was set for the demonstration on June 30 if the government doesn’t pay their allowances.

“As I speak with you, our juniors have just been posted, and they will start their rotation on July 3. They are going to take over the hunger, frustration, hardship, and depression that we have been through. These nurses are also owed 11 months of their trainee allowances, yet they have been posted to take over from us”.

“So we are demonstrating against these things. These students must not go through what we are going through right now,” he added.
