He gave the commendation at Winneba where he interacted with newsmen on the 10th anniversary celebration of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).
He noted that notwithstanding the initial challenges that confronted the system, the policy had systematically progressed almost in every corner of the country within the past 10 years.
The MCE noted that in spite of the challenges, workers of the scheme, at the national and regional levels, were doing all they could to sustain and improve the system.
He, however, cautioned employees of the scheme, especially those at management positions, to guard against all forms of financial malpractices to enable them to move the scheme forward.
Nii Ephraim urged Ghana to contribute, financially, towards the execution of all vital national policies such as the NHIS.
He noted that gone were the days when Ghanaians thought they could leave everything to government to work on.
He lauded workers in the Effutu and Awutu/Senya administrative areas for their appreciable performance which had made the scheme one of the best in the country and urged them to sustain the tempo. GNA
