Vice-President Professor John Evans Atta Mills today swore in Mr Samuel Nuamah Donkor and Dr Moses Adibo as Minister of Health and deputy Minister of Health, tasking them to evolve an enhanced Medicare system. They both took the oaths of office, allegiance and secrecy.

Prof. Mills reminded them about the "sensitivity of the health sector to the development of the country" and urged them to live up to the expectations of the people.

He said the elevation of Mr Nuamah Donkor to the substantive post from deputy minister is an acknowledgement of his capability and expressed the hope that he would not disappoint the authorities.


Prof. Mills expressed similar sentiments about Dr Adibo, former Director of Medical Services, and urged the two to work together in harmony to improve the health sector.

Mr Nuamah Donkor thanked the presidency for their appointment and pledged their collective efforts to achieve good results.

He said he acknowledged the enormity of the task ahead, adding that he would practice an open-door policy to tap the experience of professionals as well as technical men to improve the health care system.
