A military detachment at the Afari Military Hospital on Monday September 27, stopped some minority Members of Parliament on the Health Committee led by Kwabena Minkah Akandoh and the media from inspecting and filming the facility.
According to reports, the military group were assigned there after an exposé on the deteriorating condition of the project which began under the erstwhile John Dramani Mahama administration.
The Minority were hugely disappointed after noticing that work has stalled for years after former president John Dramani Mahama left power.
Addressing the press, the minority caucus’ spokesperson on health, Mr Kwabena Mintah Aknadoh said they will not sit for the government to waste the country’s resources.
He said; “I’m very sad to see what we are all seeing at the moment because most of you were part of the team when we came more than two years ago, and for me absolutely nothing has changed.
“In fact, it is going worse because some of the structures are further deteriorating. What I’m seeing here is an affront to the mandate the good people of this country have given to the president of Ghana. I think that this government is a group of old men who have no respect, for the stakeholders of the governance of this country and have no respect for the good people of this country.”
“We are paying interest on the loan that was contracted for this purpose, meanwhile, the good people of this country especially those in the catchment area have not benefitted from this project,” the Juaboso lawmaker bemoaned.
