Minority members on the health committee in Parliament today visited the 120-bed capacity Kumawu District Hospital in the Sekyere Afram plains district of the Ashanti region meant to provide health services to the people of Kumawu and other adjoining communities.
They 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.
