The Patriotic Advocates for Truth, Peace and Development, a civil society group has called for an independent investigation to deal with the perpetrators of corruption at the Ministry of Health.
A statement issued and signed by the Founder and Convenor of the group, Mr Isaac Kobina Ochem, called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Ado, to crack the whip and “clear out” elements within his party to save his image from being tarnished.
The statement said the names of some key personalities were cited in an investigation by the Punch Newspaper who accused them of extorting money from newly appointed principals of health training institutions before endorsing their appointments.
The statement further called on the President to ask all those involved to step aside for a full scale independent investigation to unravel the truth.
The statement said it was wrong for such deviant characters to be allowed to perpetrate their ill motives including the fueling of nepotism.
