ONUA MAAKYE; Captain Smart make emphasis on abandoned oxygen cylinders.

Just this early morning on the morning show of Onua TV, “Onua Maakye” was a delicate matter being discussed by Captain Smart. It actually centered on the way our current government is handling the country and some bothering issues concerning it. Through this brought about a topic mainly about the health sector. 

According to the morning show, oxygen cylinders which were been invested in and imported have been abandoned in an open area for about a year now. Captain pinpointed the fact that this government has not been making any good use of investments and importation lately. This is because these oxygen cylinders which are been abandoned are needed by the Afari 500-bed Military Hospital. It is known as one of the biggest hospitals so far.

Captain Smart then contacted Dr. Thomas Winsum Anabah, the Executive Director of the African Centre for Health Policy Research and Analysis about this issue. Captain requested from the doctor of what importance are oxygen cylinders to medical patients and it was made clear that these oxygen cylinders contain oxygen which mainly sustain the lives of patients for a long time even before their deaths. According to Dr. Anabah, he is very disappointed in the ineffective contributions the government is making towards the health sector. From his observations, he claimed comparing this government to the recent ones, this government has developed the health sector least. In terms of infrastructure, the current government has less impact on the health sector which is not a good sign. He again added that there will be no need to invest and import without any form of utilization. Whether the oxygen cylinders which are left in exposure to rain and all forms of danger are now effective or not, it is not known.

Captain Smart continued to question the government’s actions. The doctor admonished the government also that they should use their 3 years left to develop the health sector in terms of infrastructure and logistics. Also, he urged the government to efficiently exploit the tools and equipment which are being imported but left in bushy areas. This is because our health sector is in bad shape and therefore needs reforming.
