Reinstate our share of District hospitals within 48 hours or face us squarely – Savannah Region NDC to gv’t
The NDC in the Savannah region has taken a swipe at the Akufo Addo government for an allege neglect from the 88 District and regional hospitals promised by the president in his April 26th COVID 19 address to the nation.
According to a statement issued and signed by the Savannah regional communication officer of the NDC, Abdul Maleek Basintale, the NDC noted that, a document of allocation for the various regional hospitals did not capture the Savannah region something they find unfortunate.
“Even worrying is the fact that, out of 16 regions making the nation Ghana, it is only the Savannah region that has been neglected, thrown out and dumped like a piece of tissue paper as 15 other regions have been properly represented on the allocation paper” the statement said.
The statement added that, the Savannah region has constantly been neglected by the NPP government since its creation. It said, leaving out the Savannah region out from the construction of the District hospitals is an indication of deception and disrespect to people of the region.
“The Savannah region has continuously been cheated, ignored and betrayed by the Akufo-Addo led government but this current deliberate denial of constructing district hospitals in our region and completing what had been started by your predecessor H.E John Mahama after facing the whole world to mention that we were included in the beneficiaries, is the highest level of grand deception, fraud, disregard and gross disrespect to the Customs, Chiefs and elders of our land” it added.
The NDC in the Savanna region have therefore given the government a 48 hour ultimatum to capture it in the allocation document or face their wrath.
“We wish to state unequivocally, that if within the next 48 hours, the publicly declared hospitals claimed to be built soon in the Savannah region by President Akufo-Addo are not reinstated and added on to the list as announced, the next line of hard action will be taken”.
