Unemployed nurses who were arrested last Monday for picketing at the Ministry of Health have appealed to President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to intervene on their behalf.
The nurses are to appear before the Police for a further round of interrogations tomorrow ahead of a possible court case.
The nurses stormed the Ministry of Health in a bid to pile pressure on the government to employ them.
They were subsequently arrested by the Police.
President of Graduate Unemployed Nurses and Midwives Association (GUNMA), Sugri Abdul-Rafiq, in an interview with Joy News’ Kwesi Parker Wilson said “myself, four other executives and one member were arrested. The police say they will arraign us before court.”
“And at this particular point, I want to appeal to the government of the Republic, Nana Akufo-Addo that we are his children and citizens as well, we are pleading with him to call the police to set us free,” he appealed.
Mr Abdul-Rafiq believes the President in his power could grant them pardon.
Meanwhile, during a press conference, the Minority condemned the alleged brutalities unleashed on the picketing nurses describing it as “unacceptable and alarming”.
