Former Communications Minister under the Mahama-led administration has expressed ecstasy at the fact that the coronavirus has caused the current government to use health facilities provided for the country by John Mahama.
The NPP government since coming to power have been under pressure to make use of all the health facilities provided for the country by the former administration.
These calls have over the years not yielded results for reasons best known to the people in power.
However, with the coronavirus pandemic, some of these facilities which were taking forever to be completed and some used by the country is ready in this period.
Speaking on the development in a post shared on social media he was happy that the virus has caused the needed change.
“Coronavirus has provoked the conscience of those who neglected these health projects. May they strive to do better going forward. And may we improve on our health system and make it resilient to serve the needs of all Ghanaians”, he said.
Read his full statement here:
Finally, COVID-19 has caused the use of the Bank Hospital. As for telling Ghanaians everyone is a VIP, the response can be found on the streets and at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA).
On the streets, VIPs use sirens and at KIA, VIPs and VVIPs travel through their designated segments. Government must respect the intelligence of Ghanaians, simple.
Furthermore, if all “Ghanaians were VIPs” then why make that distinction in the first place?
Why waste the bank hospital for years?
Why waste the University of Ghana Medical Centre until citizens began agitating?
Why leave several hospital projects to rot across the country just because of partisan politics?
Coronavirus has provoked the conscience of those who neglected these health projects. May they strive to do better going forward. And may we improve on our health system and make it resilient to serve the needs of all Ghanaians.
God Bless You.
