President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has released the list of all 212 Municipal and District Chief Executives.

Announcing the appointments on Wednesday, the Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Hajia Alima Mahama said the appointees are expected to be approved by the Assemblies in the coming days and weeks to complete the process.

Some nurses who have constituted themselves into a pressure group called the Coalition of Unemployed Bonded Diploma Nurses in Ghana have threatened to march to the seat of government in the coming days if the Health and Finance ministries fail to give them financial clearance to be posted to the various health institutions.

The nurses, numbering more than 100, last Monday night picketed at the Ministry of Health to press home their demand for job placements.

Groupe Nduom has condemned comments by PRO for the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS), Prince Billy Anaglatey, for what the conglomerate describes as unsavoury comments he has made to the media about a fire that razed down some of its subsidiaries.

In a statement issued in Accra on Tuesday, the company said Mr.Anaglate has on various media interviews blamed the company for not putting in place basic fire prevention measures at the affected subsidiaries.

“He should not test our resolve on the issue; we have lost millions of Ghana Cedis as a result of last Saturday's fire. We do not need the state organisation whose job is to assist those facing fire accidents to rather put pepper in our wounds,” said the head of Corporate Affairs of the company, Richmond Duke Keelson.

The aggrieved unemployed bonded nurses spent the night at the Ministry of Health despite Tuesday night’s heavy downpour.

It is their second night at the ministry as they seek for clearance to be employed.

Hundreds of them comprising general nurses, midwives and psychiatric nurses slept at the Ministry Monday after picketing there to demand their posting.

The over 900 nurses had been jobless since completing their National Service in August last year.

The National Programs Manager of the National Malaria Control Program [NMCP], Dr. Constance Bart-Plange has announced a new malaria vaccine to be rolled out in 2018 in some selected locations in the country.

According to her, the new vaccine does not promise full protection against malaria but can protect about 40% of children when administered.

Managing Director of the Graphic Communications Group Limited, Ken Ashigbey, who has been a key figure in the fight against illegal mining, says the campaign must continue despite recent successes.

Speaking on PM Express on the Joy News channel (Multi TV) on Thursday, Mr Ashigbey commended the media for the sustained fight against the destruction of water bodies and the environment by artisanal mining.
