  1. That is great. The Medical and Dental Council (MDC) deserve our applauded for taking the initiative and mounting investigation into our health professionals credentials so to root out quack doctors from our hospitals and medical facilities. The action taking by the Council is great and unprecedented and has given us the Ghanaian public some feeling and peace of mind that our health issues will from now onwards hopefully be in the hands of only qualified medical doctors. I wish to express my heartfelt and sincere thanks to every members of the Council for putting the interest of Ghanaians first and above of all other things. God bless you the members for the good job well done.
