The communications officer of the National Democratic Congress in Brong Ahafo, Mr Charles Akowuah Tuffour is puzzling the competence on the Nana Addo led administration over its commitment to quality health delivery.

In a press statement by the ebulent communicator coupled with pictorial evidence, he quizes the motive behind the malicious agendum behind the neglect of a near completed structure which was commenced by the erstwhile John Mahama administration, abandonment of the only ambulance at the hospital, et ainsi de suite.

Below is a copy of the release and pictures.

"The erstwhile Mahama led NDC government in it's bid to ensure that every district has a befitting health facilities initiated the construction of the Tain district hospital to serve the people of Nsawkaw, Wenchi, Banda and part of Sampa.

Sadly, the ediface which was of 100% completion of all the physical structures and was scheduled for it's operationalization in 2017, has been left to rot under the Akufo-Addo's administration.

The disheartening aspect of it is that, materials, resources and funding were secured by the Mahama administration for Akufo-Addo's government to complete it in 2017.

Grounded ambulance

GBC 24 reported last year 2018 that the Tain Hospital was to be opened in July, a statement made by  the health minister - Dr Kwaku Agyeman Manu after his tour to the facility.

The President himself in his 2018 State of the Nation Address emphatically announced to Parliament of operationalizing the Tain Hospital in October 2018.

Again, a response from the presidency to Occupy Ghana and Citi Fm regarding the president's commitment to open the various hospitals built by HE John D. Mahama indicated to them by clear timelines scheduled for opening in 2018 as follows;

1) Wa Regional Hospital in October
2) Madina District Hospital in November
3) Tain District Hospital in December

For the record the only ambulance that was given to the Nsawkaw Health Centre which was upgrated to the hospital status in 2009 by the Mills' administration with registration number GV 698 W has been packed on blocks for the past two years.

Until when will the Akufo-Addo's government tell the people of Ghana his commitment to open the Tain hospital which is to be the second largest hospital in Brong Ahafo with 60 bed capacity that was constructed by the Mahama administration? 

How does Akufo-Addo prioritise 600 billion old ghana cedis rented drones; drones that will be rented for only four years to Ghana solve the permanent health needs of  the 300,000 people of Tain, Wenchi, Banda and part of Sampa?

The Akufo-Addo government must set his priorities right and open the Tain Hospital which has the capacity to give permanent employment to 350 health practitioners (Nurses and Doctors) and a number of Administrators, drivers, Lab Technicians, Security men, Environmental workers and many indirect jobs to boost the local economy of Tain.

The question is when will Akufo-Addo open the Tain Hospital that has the capacity of creating employment for 750 direct and indirect jjob to the people aside it's core duty of providing world class health treatment?

It's the duty of civil society groups, NGOs and all to demand for the opening of all hospitals for the benefits of Ghanaians.
Let us remain citizens and demand for our right for improved health care services"
