Former President of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama says H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the NPP government must take Ghanaians serious.
In a statement made by the former President of Ghana, he said categorically that the
“The ‘Agenda 111’ hospitals promise is in its 4th year, yet not a single hospital has been completed to support quality health care delivery.”
It could be recalled that on Tuesday, 17th August 2021 H.E Akufo-Addo launched the Agenda 111 project where they outlined the constituents of the project clearly.
Today, January 2023, John Mahama says not a single hospital as promised by the NPP government in 2021 has been completed yet to support quality healthcare delivery.
Further, he added that “This is contrary to the lofty promise made in 2020.”
Earlier, in 2020, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo promised Ghanaians on Sunday, 26th April 2020, 88 new district hospitals across the country within a space of 12 months. But the promise did not materialise.
The 88 new hospitals promised by Nana Addo during his weekly update on how to lessen the spread of COVID-19 was a measure to handle the fast-killing world virus.
Part of his update highlights the 88 promised hospitals
“There are 88 districts in our country without district hospitals; we have six (6) new regions without regional hospitals; we do not have five infectious disease control centres dotted across the country, and we do not have enough testing and isolation centres for diseases like COVID-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 88 hospitals in the districts without hospitals.”
“The NPP must learn to take Ghanaians serious,” Mahama said in his statement.
Finally, he said, “Enough of the slogans!”
To John Mahama, the NPP government is best at coining slogans instead of addressing the
challenges citizens face.
On the other end, Mahama believes that his NDC party is a hard-working party that does not rely on slogans and the craving option Ghanaians are waiting to vote for come 2024 general elections.
