Sammy Awuku says the protest march by junior nurses and midwives of Korle Bu Teaching Hospital over unpaid salaries and allowances for almost two years (21 months) and the recent tariff hikes shows how 'careless' the Mahama-led administration is towards Ghanaians
According to the former deputy communications director of the NPP, government only wants to push the aggrieved junior nurses into prostitution if it does not pay the nurses their salaries since that might be the only way to earn income.
'For two years without payment, what do you want them (Nurses and Midwives) to do?' he questioned.
Speaking on Adom FM, Sammy Awuku, who is aspiring for the position of National Youth Organizer of the NPP, added that the youth of the country are now 'dispirited, disoriented and disenchanted' under the Mahama-led administration.
'Corruption is like a sticker at the back of the NDC. And they don't care. For now the only solution is to pray and fast. And I pray that Ghana can survive under this NDC government,' he said.
Meanwhile, the Junior Nurses have returned to work following the payment of their salary for the month of September.
Spokesperson for the nurses, Diana Marfo, who confirmed the payments as promised by the hospitals' administration, said that the nurses have returned to work.
