The Member of Parliament for North Tongu constituency Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa claims the Nana Akufo Addo led administration has abandoned almost all health projects initiated by ex-President Mahama worth 1.5bn dollars.
According to him, the situation is worrying leading to the loss of many due to insufficient health facilities in the country.
He made the claims at the inauguration of newly elected TEIN executives (Kwahu Branch) at Eastern Palace at Atibie in the Kwahu South District of Eastern Region which include Holy Family Nursing Training College, Atibie Nursing Training College, Abetifi College of Education and Abetifi Presbyterian University.
Mr. Ablakwa said, “a consecutive estimate confirmed by the world health organization, the government itself has not disputed that the health infrastructure, health infrastructure, hospitals, medical centers, built and completed and some nearing completion to a tune of 1.5b dollars have been totally abandoned by this government.”
He added that the University of Ghana Medical Facility is the largest hospital in West Africa but it’s yet to be operationalized.
‘’We just don’t want to operationalize the hospital for President Mahama to be given credit, do we build a country that way,’’ he asked?
Mr. Okudzeto Ablakwa while describing the Akufo Addo administration style of governance as petty, he asked “Are you aware that these medical facilities that the NDC built, there is one in my constituency, one at Kumawu, Tepa, Bank of Ghana Hospital, Abetifi Hospital, all these should have been completed long time ago.”
Touching on jobs, he said all these abandoned projects would have created employment to prevent nurses from picketed at the Ministry of health for them to be arrested.
He urged the executives to work harder to ensure the NPP is voted out during the upcoming 2020 general election.
