Unemployed Nurses and Midwives have laced their boots in readiness to hit the streets in protest of the government's failure to release financial clearance to allow for their employment.

 The Protest comes following the August 31 deadline they gave the government to work on their financial clearance.

A statement from the Association says the protest will take place in six regions including Volta, Ashanti, Northern, Upper West, Upper East, and the Central Regions.

The Association in an earlier statement released on August 20th, gave government until the end of August to give them financial clearance or face their wrath.

A portion of the statement read:
"We are by this notice calling on the president of the Republic H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo to please, take keen interest in the employment of nurses and midwives and work within the shortest possible time to get us financially cleared by the end of August, 2018 to prevent us from going the extra mile as outlined which we pray it does not get to that." the August 20 statement said.
