The Upper West Regional Branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has express it’s revulsion towards the Akufo Addo led government over their inability to commission the newly constructed Regional Hospital and the Wa Airport for public use.
Addressing scores of party members, supporters and sympathizers at the forecourt of the newly constructed Upper West Regional Hospital after a demonstration in Wa, on WMrdnesday, Mr Prosper Puo-ire, the Regional Communications Officer of the party indicated that the hospital which was rated 95 percent complete three years ago when the NDC left power was still not opened to citizens in the Region.
He noted that the bad faith exhibited by the current administration towards the Upper West had left natives stranded in their healthcare needs and had caused several avoidable deaths as natives from the “poverty endemic Region” had great difficulties in accessing referral health facilities in other parts of the country.
Mr Puo-ire was also not happy about the delay in commissioning the Wa Airport which was completed and handed over to the current administration, saying it “still remains a tourist site and preserved for sole use of the President and his Vice”.
This he said was insensitive as government had given several dates for the commissioning of the project and none had come to pass.
According to him, other abandoned projects in the region included ten warehouses which were completed by the erstwhile administration and the Nadowli-Babile-Nandom-Hamile road that was under construction.
Mr Puo-ire said Hamile-Fielmuoand-Gwollu road that was being constructed had been stalled whilst work on the Hian-Jeffisi-Tumu road had also come to a standstill.
Mr Puo-ire, thus, called on the government to immediately take steps in commissioning all completed projects initiated by the erstwhile Mahama administration.
Some Regional and Constituency executives of the NDC took their turns to address the gathering. Others include Former Upper West Regional Minister Bede Ziedeng and Former DCE for Wa West Alhaji Adamu N S Dasaana.
Meanwhile, Dr Hafiz Bin-Salih, the Upper West Regional Minister, has stated that government will not yield to pressure from a section of the public to commission uncompleted state projects to the detriment of the larger populace.
