Mahama Promises To Build Hospital Ship When Elected

Published

on


Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress has promised to build a hospital ship to improve healthcare delivery if elected in the upcoming December elections.

The former president made this statement in his Facebook live session on Thursday June 18, 2020.

“We will build a new Onipa Nua Hospital Ship and deploy it to provide medical services to the inaccessible riverine and fishing communities on the inland Volta waterways,” he said.

This promise came after he criticised president Akuffo Addo for abandoning some of his innovatives policies that sought to improve healthcare delivery in the country.

He accused government of abandoning the Onua Do Mobile Vans he introduced in 2015.

“These were vans meant to provide medical outreach services…in underserved and hard to reach areas of the country. But the vans have been left at the vagaries of the weather,” he stated.

He said the vans were designed to deliver specialized services in ophthalmology, dentistry, mammograms and general medicine by visiting rural and far-to-reach communities of the country but they have not been put to that use since he left office.

He, therefore, promised to rehabilitate these dilapidated mobile clinics and expand the number to care for all 16 regions of the country to enable government “take healthcare to the doorsteps of all our people, even in the remotest parts of our country”.

NPP Prioritises Elections Over Safety of Ghanaians – Minority

Published

on


The Minority in Parliament has accused the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) government of being more interested in the upcoming elections than ensuring the safety of Ghanaians amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.

A statement released under the signature of the Minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu noted the observance of non compliance of Covid-19 protocols at various registration centres.

It said the Electoral Commission ignored experts advice and are risking Ghanaian lives with overcrowding at various centres which only increases the chances of citizens contracting the virus.

“This non-compliance was also demonstrated during the just-ended NPP parliamentary primaries which confirms the fact that NPP is promoting the spread of the infection because they have prioritised elections over the safety of human lives,” part of the statement read.

It added, “If this continues, there will be more morbidities and mortalities, which will overwhelm the health system in the country.”

The country’s Covid-19 case count currently stands at 19,388 with 117 deaths.

Should Pastors and Covid-19 Offenders Remain in Jail? Ablakwa Quizzes As Carlos Ahenkorah Prosecution Drags On

Published

on


Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has waded in on the immediate-past Deputy Trade Minister, Carlos Kinsley Ahenkorah’s Coronavirus brouhaha.

Carlos Ahenkorah incurred the wrath of Ghanaians after he toured some Electoral Commission registration centres while he had tested positive for the Coronavirus.

In an interview he said, “I drove in my car and got there, got down, and spoke far away with the EC officer who explained the issue to me. I told her I will report this to their boss and then I just left. I was very careful. It is important for people like us to know their status because whether you like it not, we will go into the midst of people.”

He had been heavily criticised after this comment which has eventually led to his resignation.

However, many are still calling for a possible prosecution for the MP just as has been done to some Covid-19 protocol offenders.

Communications Minister, Ursula Owusu Ekuful, on her part, believes the calls are unfounded and exaggerated.

Okudzeto Ablakwa joining the conversation quizzes if other Covid-19 offenders should remain in jail.

In a post on Facebook he asked, “should the Pastors and other Covid-19 offenders remain in jail?”

Voter’s Register: Timely Intervention Of Muntaka Saves 7 ‘NPP Minors’ From Severe Beatings In Asawase

Published

on


Seven JHS Students who were allegedly bused by a tutor Bismark Okyere to register in the Asawase Constituency have been arrested after protests from NDC polling agents.

One student was first arrested when he was spotted in a queue attempting to register. The student upon sensing danger following the anger of the NDC supporters at the registration center attempted to run but luck eluded him when he was apprehended.

The timely intervention of the Incumbent NDC MP for the Area, Muntaka Mubarak prevented what would have been an unfortunate lynching by the vigilant NDC agents.

The student then confessed he was bused to the registration center by his teacher with 20 other final year students. He quickly pointed 6 other students who were already in queue to register. They were also arrested.
