Senior Political Science Lecturer at the University of Ghana, Dr. Kwame Asah Asante, has thrown his weight behind the Agenda 111 health project by the Akufo-Addo administration.
President Nana Akufo-Addo has reassured Ghanaians of his commitment to build 111 district and Regional hospitals across the country.
According to the President, 88 of the hospitals are expected to be completed within 18 months.
”So far sites have been identified for 88 of the 111 hospitals, and after cutting the sod, work on the other 87 sites will also commence today [Tuesday].”
“The acquisition of the remaining 13 sites will be completed shortly for work to begin. Each hospital is being constructed at a cost of $16.88 million, i.e. $12.88 million for construction and $4 million for medical equipment, and all the hospitals are to be completed in 18 months and works will begin on the regional and other hospitals in the latter part of the year,” the President said during his sod-cutting for the project in the Ashanti Region on Tuesday, August 17.
Commenting on the project during Peace FM’s ”Kokrokoo”, Dr. Asah Asante complimented the President for his resolution to improve the health sector.
He believed the Agenda 111 will create huge youth employment and advised the President not to renege on his promise.
”I plead with the government to be true to its word and deliver what they have promised . . . this Agenda 111 will create more jobs for the youth,” he stated.
