Many may possibly be wondering what actually necessitated the Honourable Speaker of Parliament's sudden travel to The United Arab Emirates for a medical review. Exception to those who probably had a fair knowledge about his medical condition, it has taken almost everyone by surprise. It started circulating just a day after presiding over the controversial 2022 wicked tagged Agyenkwa Budget.
Away from the surprise, what is really triggering most Ghanaians politicians to seek for Medical Treatments or Reviews outside the country? Not long ago, the Honourable Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta also fled the country to the United States of America for an emergency health treatment. This is something they least talk about because they feel that Ghanaians will always cater for their needs so there is absolutely no need to build similar giant hospitals in the country.
This is a total system failure from our political leaders, and I think we have been quiet about this for a very long time. This is the time to expose and shame them for wasting the country's resources on external medical services. The monies spent on using medical services elsewhere could be accumulated on yearly basis to build an ultramodern health facilities for the benefit of everyone in the country. It is highly disappointing that our Speaker of Parliament is also toeing the same direction, and bringing more disgrace upon himself, and the country at large. One latent thing Westerners keep wondering is that upon all the resources we have, we keep running to them for medical services. This is really shameful, and I think politicians think they are above these shameful acts that is why they are so reluctant to reverse the situation.
If Bagbin had built or possibly advocated for the construction of a well advanced and reliable Medical Centre in his hometown, region or perhaps any part of Ghana, as great political personality, I do not think he would he traveling elsewhere to seek for Medical Support. He has woefully failed himself, the people of Northern Ghana, and the country at large.
Just imagine the amount of money he and his wife, together with the delegates are going to spend in Dubai during those few periods.
