The Ministry of Health has justified the hundred percent hikes in school fees of trainee nurses and midwives.

The Ghana Nurse and Midwife Trainees Association and some students of the Mampong Nurse Training College are protesting the increment in school fees by the Ministry.

Some students of the Mampong Nurse Training College, who spoke to Joynews, insisted the new fees be reviewed.

?At first, we were paying GHS400 but now we are paying GHS1500. It’s too much…,? one student lamented.

Another added: ?Last (semester) we paid GHS409 for our fees…but this semester we are paying almost GHS1600 and the most annoying thing is about the (hike in the) hostel fee.?

Despite the concerns raised by the students , the Public Relations Officer of the sector ministry, Anthony Goodman has maintained the increments are not as outrageous as being portrayed.

He explained that the increment has resulted due to high cost of living and asked the students to forward their grievances to the ministry.
