Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has unveiled the first Islamic Nursing Training College in Ghana at Aplaku in the capital Accra on Saturday, March 19.
He was joined by the leadership of the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa from Ghana and Nigeria for the opening ceremony.

Vice-President Bawumia said in a Facebook post that the Islamic Nursing Training School will offer more admission opportunities to young Ghanaians aspiring to be nurses.
