The Upper West Regional Caucus of the National Democratic Congress in Parliament has accused the Ghana Health Service of discriminating against locals in the recruitment of District Health Directors.
According to the group, no one from the Upper West Region was chosen out of 71 open positions with 116 applicants, despite the fact that the applicant with the highest exam score came from the region.
According to the caucus, eight of the region's shortlisted applicants were disqualified because they lacked the necessary knowledge on the management of district health directors and epidemic outbreaks.
Dr. Sebastian N. Sandaare, Secretary of the Upper West NDC Caucus in Parliament, described the situation as unfair and urged the Ghana Health Service to audit the recruitment procedure to ensure regional balance.
In accordance with Article 23 of the 1992 constitution, the Ghana Health Service is reminded of its obligation to exercise its administrative authority in a just and reasonable manner.
The MP declared that the Ghana Health Service was mandated to forbid prejudice and discrimination based on a person's country of origin.
