Ghana should be worried

In an interview with YEN.com.gh, Mr Daniel Fenyi lamented that the mass exodus of health professionals moving away from the countries of Europe and the US should be a cause for concern.

He bemoaned that if this trend continues unchecked, the country may soon face a shortage of health professionals.

"The nation should be worried about the situation. Almost all our nurses, doctors and other skilled professionals are running out of the country. This poses a national security threat to Ghana. Very soon, we may not have nurses and doctors to take care of our sick citizens neither will we have teachers to teach our children," he stated.
