The Volta Regional Minister, Dr. Archibald Letsa, has asked workers of the National Health Insurance Authority to be committed to the policies of the government devoid of party politics to enhance health service delivery in the country.
Speaking to workers of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) in Ho during their midyear review workshop, the Minister observed that, some workers have over the years allowed their political inclinations to override their professional ethics thus thwarting the efforts of successive governments towards improving the operations of the scheme.
He said the current government would not hesitate to sanction any worker who compromises his or her professional ethics along political lines.
“I want you to know that Ghanaians gave an overwhelming endorsement to the NPP to govern this country for the next four years. So it doesn’t matter your political colour, if you want to be with the NHIA you must be totally committed to the change agenda of our government. If you think that your political affiliation would not permit you to be part of our agenda, jump off the tree before you are pushed off” he stated.
The mid-year review organized by the NHIA, is to among other things afford the organization the opportunity to take stock of its performance over the period, and strategize towards the attainment of its annual goals.
