Nurses and Midwives Association have threatened to stop working should the government fail to provide the needed Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) to keep them safe.
According to them, although their work is very crucial in saving lives, they are not soldiers who have pledged to put their lives on the line for the nation.
Speaking to Happy 98.9 FM’s Samuel Eshun on the Happy Morning Show, the PRO of the association said
“When the virus broke out, nurses and doctors called on the government to address our numerous concerns but we were not listened to. Now, there are no PPEs in the system.”
“Health workers, unlike soldiers, didn’t pledge to put their lives down for the nation. We said we will save lives regardless of tribe and treat all lives as equals. If we don’t receive the PPEs, then it means we have to be cautious and move away from the virus.”
