Members of the Coalition of Bonded Unposted Allied Health Professionals will be picketing the offices of the Minister of Health in Accra today, 22 May, to protest against the government’s failure to post them to their stations after completing their national service.
A statement released on Monday and signed by President of the group, Solomon Yeboah, said: “We the members of the above named league, this day (22/5/2017), activate our picketing at the MoH premises, as suspended from Monday, 8 May 2017.”
“This has become necessary following the ‘neglect’ of the promise made by the Hon. Deputy Minister (Mrs Tina Mensah) to provide us with evidence of our financial clearance with date of immediate postings on Monday, 15 May 2017.
“We state without any equivocation that we are not leaving the MoH and shall continue to the Flagstaff House premises when necessary until we see an evidence-based [and] satisfactory … financial clearance,” the group said.
