The Upper West Regional chapter of the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association, wants the reassigned Health Director for the region to handover immediately.
Dr Osei Kuffour Afreh was appointed to a different post effective May 11, but members of the Association say they want him out of his office before that date.
In a statement copied to JoyNews, the health workers who accuse Dr Afreh of presiding over an ailing health system said, the call is important because “his further dragging of the process will worsen the situation as he may not be able to focus on giving instructions to his subordinates as we are beginning to see in some places.
“Members of the GRNMA constitute up to 70% of the total workforce in the health sector, therefore, when a sector gets bad, our members bear the brunt the most.”
The Association adds that if by Monday April 27, 2020 Dr Afreh fails to initiate steps to handover, all Nurses and Midwives in the region will “wear red and to work as a first step to drum home this crucial call.”
