Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has today, Saturday, March 19, 2022, joined leadership of the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa, from Ghana and Nigeria, at Aplaku, Accra, for the opening of the first Islamic Nursing Training College in Ghana.
Speaking at the ceremony, he said despite the existence of over 90 public nursing training colleges across the country, they are inadequate to meet the growing admission demands of SHS graduates.
He said the private sector, especially Faith based organizations, have played leading roles in complementing government’s efforts at expanding access to nursing training by establishing nursing schools.
He explained that the Islamic Nursing Training School, is a welcome addition to these schools, and it will offer more admission opportunities to young Ghanaians aspiring to be nurses.
He commended leadership of the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamma, as well as all those who contributed towards building the Islamic Nursing Training School.
