The Constituency Secretary for Sefwi Akontombra on the ticket of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Western North Region, Mr. Harry Yaw Addo has rubbished the fibs and propaganda comment propagating by the Ranking Member of Parliamentary Select Committee on Health and the lawmaker for Sefwi Juaboso Constituency, Hon. Kwabena Mintah Akandoh for accusing NPP government for abandoning health projects which were started by the then Mahama’s administration.
According to him, Hon. Kwabena Mintah with some rented press men toured various health projects sites in the regions within the country with the motive to expose the wickedness and also to dent the global recognition that has attained by the NPP government.
Addo Harry (Ogyaba), has also responded to his deliberate tour to blackmail NPP government and dubbed such move as hypocrisy.
According to Addo Harry, he who seeks equity must do equity. Adding the NDC is desperate to win political power at all costs, spewing bullets and accusations on the NPP government for abandoning health facilities in the country.
He argued that the government inherited a bad economy in 2016 from the previous government but had been able to turn things around through prudent policies and introduction of programmes and initiatives to improve the health sector.
He mentioned for instance, restoration of nurse’s trainee allowances which was scraped by NDC government, drones to transport blood to address emergencies cases, revamp of National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), and above all hundreds of ambulances ready to be distributed countrywide to handling emergencies and referrer cases in the various health facilities.
He said, the NPP government is far better than NDC in terms of infrastructural development and policy formulations per records. He stressed.
He also disclosed that, there are several health facilities that have been taken over by snakes and rats which were started by the former President John Agyekum Kuffour, a typical example is the Multi-million Nsawora and Sefwi Asawinso Polyclinics among others which were expected to be completed in 2010.
Ogyaba is therefore appealing to Ghanaians particularly the good people of Western North Region to debunk these falsehood crusade from Hon. Kwabena Mintah Akandoh who is noted with such fibs in Ghana’s politics.
