Nana Kofi said that, with how the country is going, nurses and other health workers shouldn't stay in the country, especially when they are young and can work for more money abroad.

"Everyone should travel when they get the opportunity, especially nurses. I have enjoyed a smooth stay and work experience in the UK. Time waits for no man, so people should make the bold move; otherwise, you'll retire with nothing or something small saved. Don't waste youth in Ghana hoping it will develop," he said.
