GTM Condemns Government’s Directive To Reduce Nursing Training Admission to 60 Percent
The Ghana Tertiary Movement (GTM) has strongly condemn the decision from government led by President AkuffoAddo to reduce admissions into Nursing Training Colleges to 60 percent in next academic year is fraudulent, depressive and unfair.
The directive from government published recently in all media outlets to the effect of reducing admissions into Nursing Training Colleges to 60 percent is unfair.
The chairman of the Association, Mr. Shadrack Fofo Ahiable, dropped the hint in an interview with The Republic in Kumasi.
According to him, Mr. Ahiable, information from the Education Ministry reveals that enrollment into Nursing Training College increased from 8,422 to 52,000, representing 84 percent of access into the nursing training colleges between 2013-2016 adding that enrolments will increase further in the 2017/2018 academic year.
He further explained that the decision of government to reintroduce the abandoned quota admission policy upon assumption of power is extremely depressive, fraudulent and unfair to tolerate.
He, therefore, appealed to the president AkuffoAddo to immediately halt the decision now without much delay. He also added that further attempts to bring back the ‘quota system’ of admission into Ghanaians will crash hope of all qualified applicants who desire to gain admission into the nursing training colleges to be trained as medical professionals, and should be condemned by all and sundry. Failure to lead to our clarion call will open the pandora’s box to clog the wheels peace and justice of our beloved country Ghana, he retorted.
