When ambulances convey sick Ghanaians where will they take them to? – Mahama rips ‘petty’ Akufo-Addo

NDC Presidential candidate, John Mahama

Ex-president John Mahama and Presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has lamented the neglect by the current regime of some hospital projects his government started before his 2016 defeat.

He said his government began constructions of those hospitals to ease congestions in the major health centres.

But instead of continuing those projects, president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has rather halted works at Fomena, and Bolgatanga among others, the ex-president said during a Facebook Live session Thursday.

“You’ve stayed the hospitals and [you are] glorifying in the distribution of ambulances,” Mr Mahama said, quizzing: “…and so you pick the person and send them where?”

“There is a complete loss of prioritisation,” the NDC presidential candidate said of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).

He said his governments undertook many projects but did not organise highflying ceremonies to announce them to Ghanaians.

“[Between] 2012 -2013 we brought 100 ambulances and did not do posters, [we brought] fire engines [and] there are many others things,” he said. –

“We gave the police more than 1,000 vehicles – the highest in the history of Ghana,” Mr Mahama said but conceded: “these are things governments do.”
