Assembly member for Dabala Electoral Area, Hon. Stephen Aho has expressed disappointment in the current state of the Dabala Health Center right after a donation made by the South Tongu MP on its premises on Tuesday, 12th January 2021.
According to him, the health facility cannot boast of a children’s ward and a nurse’s bungalow.
He said some 16 years ago they were told that the Dabala Health Center has been upgraded to a polyclinic but nothing shows it has been upgraded.
“For about 16 -18 years, we were told that the Dabala Health Center has been upgraded to a polyclinic but that’s not the case. On paper, it is a polyclinic but on the grounds, it is not. For instance, there’s no ward to admit children. Apart from putting a drip on a patient, there’s little the health centre can offer.”
He added that they need more facilities at the Health Center to boast health care delivery system for the Constituents.
“We need more facilities. We need wards and nurses bungalow.”
The assemblyman was among those present at a handing over ceremony on Tuesday, 12th January 2021, organized by Hon. Wisdom Kobena Mensah Woyome, Member of Parliament for South Tongu.
