Spokesperson for the group, Asante Offei speaking to Accra-based Citi FM said they’ll stop at nothing to ensure that they have their issues addressed.

He said "We completed our mandatory internship in the months of March, April, and May, depending on when one started. By the end of May, it was expected that every PA that had internship a year ago should finish by that time. And by June we were done and then we have registered. So we started making follow ups, to the MoH as well as MMDCEs. But all that we were told is our list is not with them yet; it’s yet to be verified.
