COVID-19: Akufo-Addo Not Committed To Improve Health Sector- …
Former Deputy Minister of Communications, Felix Kwakye Ofosu has said the President Akufo-Addo led government is not committed to boost and invest in the Health sector.
According to him, since President Akufo-Addo came to office in 2017, he has failed to put resolute measures in place to put the health sector in Ghana.
Felix Kwakye Ofosu is calling on the Akufo-Addo led government to complete ‘abandoned’ projects started by the previous government led by John Dramani Mahama.
“The real reason we are having this discussion is that the Akufo-Addo government can easily be unwilling to either operationalize or complete projects that he inherited. The fact remains that President Akufo-Addo has not shown enough commitment to investing capital in the health sector and even when they are presented with an opportunity to open up completed projects, they have failed and left Ghanaians in dire need,”he told Eyewitness News
“You will notice there is a lot of scepticism and that scepticism stems from the President’s own abysmal record in completion of hospitals,” Mr. Kwakye Ofosu argued.
To buttress his point, the former Deputy Minister said the President “is now proposing the building of 88 hospitals of which work has not begun”, after being in power for almost four years.
Health Minister, Kwaku Agyeman-Manu, says the Government was planning to construct 22 District Hospitals before the announcement of 88 new hospitals on Sunday, April 26 by the President.
