The leadership of the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) will on Friday, February 23, 2018, meet leaders of all protesting unemployed and concerned youth groups for a crunch discussion on their grievances.
It will be recalled that the 2016-year batch of unemployed nurses embarked on a two day protest this week which saw them picketing at the premises of the Ministry of Health. It took force and aggression by the Ghana Police Service to disperse them from the Ministry’s premises.
Also, last week, the National Health Students’ Association of Ghana (NAHSAG) and the Coalition of Unemployed Allied Health Graduates (CUAHN) jointly addressed a press conference where they called on the government to address their concerns regarding unemployment of their members.
The group further gave a 14-day ultimatum to government which is expected to end next week. They further threatened continuous demonstrations and legal actions should their requests not be honored by the powers that be.
Again, the Unemployed Graduates Association of Ghana (UGAG) has planned a joint demonstration with all aggrieved unemployed youth and professionals.
President NUGS, Leader Frank Amoakohene, told journalists on Thursday that the Union will tomorrow meet leaders of the various groups for an in-depth discussions on their grievances so as to offer them the needed support as a decision is taken on what actions they should take.
