Mahama Can Never Implement Free Primary Healthcare, Don’t Listen to Him – UEW Lecturer

Published

on


A lecturer at the Kumasi-campus of the University of Education, Winneba, Mr. Aaron Kumah has insisted former President John Dramani Mahama’s pledge to implement a free primary healthcare for all Ghanaians can never done, cautioning him to quit talking about it.

Speaking on Pure FM, Mr Kumah stressed that John Mahama’s administration had health service personnel complaining every time in the country because they couldn’t use the premium and other VAT components to take care of primary health.

He quizzed how the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer would fund the free primary healthcare which would take care of over 30 million Ghanaians since he has been critiquing the Akufo Addo government for the cost involved in the free shs which covers over 1.2 million students.

“It is under the last four years of the NDC government that health service providers really complained in this country. Every single week, you will hear of the health service providers complain, if it’s not the pharmaceutical association, then it’s the mission hospitals, this continued till the end of his tenure amidst taking premium and NHIS benefits. You couldn’t use the premium and other VAT components to take care of primary health care then and you expect us to believe you now that you are going to make it free.”

Mr Kumah further cautioned the former president to quit promising free primary healthcare if not he’ll personally campaign against him that he wants to collapse the National Health Insurance Scheme.

“Even with health insurance benefits, you couldn’t manage the health sector well and now you expect us to hand over our health service to you to make primary health care free… I beg him, he should take that part out of his utterances and intentions… I beg him, he shouldn’t mention free primary health care ever again. They should come out to tell Ghanaians that they didn’t understand the primary health care well and so they have taken it out of their manifesto and they will come up with a new policy.

“He could have said something like completing the health structures that he commenced and has been abandoned by the NPP administration but on primary health care, he can never convince us Ghanaians that he will make it free… If he doesn’t stop trumpeting the free primary health care agenda, I’m from now going to campaign that President Mahama is coming to collapse the health insurance scheme so we shouldn’t vote for him. He should stop talking [free] primary health care. This is a serious matter. It can’t happen. He can never do it. Ghanaians should not listen to him,” he affirmed.

Published

Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia says Ghana will soon become the preferred destination in Africa in the automobile industry.

According to Dr. Bawumia, the current government’s commitment to allow automobile manufacturing companies into the country to assemble vehicles would soon transform Ghana to be the Dubai of the sub region.

The Vice President stated that the economic dividends of this move will soon be evident as other African countries will soon troop in to buy vehicles in Ghana.

He added that this is part of the good governance the NPP promised the people of Ghana prior to assuming the reigns of power in 2016.

He urged the chiefs and residents of Ashaiman whom he visited to vote massively for the NPP to extend the mandate of President Akuffo-Addo for four more years of good governance and policies.

NPP’s Incompetent Tag On Me Won Them The 2016 Elections – Mahama

Published

on


Former President John Dramani Mahama has noted that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in 2016 deliberately tagged him with incompetence and trumpeted it loud enough for Ghanaians to believe it.

According to him, the several repetition of the incompetent tag on him to the Ghanaian people, made the NPP won because Ghanaians thought it was true.

However, as it stands now, Ghanaians have realized who is truly incompetent because they now have the chance to compare four years under him with that of the NPP.

“For those of us who studied Social psychology you can repeat something over and over again then people come to accept it as the truth and that is the strategy the NPP took in 2016.

“They put an underserved tag of incompetence on us and said it over and over again to get it stuck in the minds of people that we were indeed incompetent but today we can see what is happening,” he said.
