He disclosed that by the end of Akufo-Addo’s first tenure the President will complete his promise of building 88 District Hospital and six Regional Hospitals across the country this year to boost the health system against covid-19 and future pandemics.
“NDC has always doubted President Akufo-Addo to fulfill his promises, but he fulfilled the promises of Free SHS, One District One Factory and numerous promises. I want to tell you today that President Akufo-Addo will complete all those projects within one year to improve the facilities of health infrastructures in Ghana,’’ Awal Mohammed told Kwaku Dawuro on ‘Pae Mu Ka’ on Accra-based Kingdom FM 107.7
President Akufo-Addo in his eighth address to the nation on Sunday announced the construction of hospitals in some 88 districts across the country this year.
“There are eighty-eight (88) districts in our country without district hospitals; we have six (6) new regions without regional hospitals; we do not have 5 infectious disease control centres dotted across the country, and we do not have enough testing and isolation centres for diseases like COVD-19. We must do something urgently about this. That is why Government has decided to undertake a major investment in our healthcare infrastructure, the largest in our history. We will, this year, begin constructing eighty-eight (88) hospitals in the districts without hospitals,” he said.
