A member of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Health, Dr Mathew Opoku-Prempeh has reiterated calls for a de-politicization of the appointments of Chief Executives of regulatory bodies.

His call comes on the back of a repeat broadcast of Joy FM’s Hotline documentary “When Medicines Don’t Heal”.

The documentary, produced by Beatrice Adu highlights the issue of fake drugs in Ghana.

Speaking to Super Morning Show host Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, Mathew Opoku Prempeh, also an NPP MP for Manhyia said the best way to make the regulatory agencies effective in dealing with the problem, is by making them apolitical.

He also said the issue of fake drugs will be discussed on the floor of parliament as soon it reconvenes.
