The Ranking member on the Health Committee of Parliament Kwabena Minta Akando has given indications that the Minority side would hit the street to demonstrate if medications locked-up at the port are not totally cleared.

According to him the Minority reasonable enough and would adhere to the two weeks request by the Health Minister to do the needful.

Addressing members of the Parliamentary Press Corps on Thursday, June 20, 2024, he pointed out that the Minority will not relent on its effort to ensure medications locked up at the port are totally cleared.

“We have heard the pleading of the Minister of Health that we should give him two weeks; it does not make sense for the Minister to ask for two weeks, for medical commodities that have been at the port for one year”.

Again, within the two weeks’ timeline, all containers containing the commodities should be cleared from the port; not some as they have been doing; clear few and go and sleep, we would not tolerate that, he added.
