Mahama built over 55 hospitals in four years, NPP Afenyo Markins 'mistakenly' admits

7th September, 2021

The Effutu legislator Hon. Afenyo Markins has shockingly admitted that, former President Mahama left behind more than 55 hospitals in various stages of completion. The deputy leader of majority group in parliament was speaking with TV3's Dzifa Bampoe in an exclusive interview yet to be aired intercepted by CitizenOne when he made that disclosure.

According to Afenyo Markins, it was never true that, the current government has abandoned the numerous hospital facilities started by former President Mahama. He said there was a document to proof that about 55 hospitals which were started by the previous administration have been completed and put into use by the Nana Addo government. He therefore wondered why people keep shouting abandoned hospitals.

The question was on agenda 111 and why Government will not channel resources into completing existing hospitals instead. "You see the problem I have with you media is thay you keep shouting abandoned hospitals, abandoned hospitals. Where are those abandoned hospitals?", he asked Dzifa Bampoe.

"Government has produced a document which proofs that, at least 55 hospitals started by Mr. Mahama administration have been completed and put to use. In his four or eight years, he couldn't complete them and we had to complete them and put into use. And I can tell you, no one has disputed that document", deputy leader added without providing the said document.

On government's ability to complete the 111 hospitals within the 18 months schedule, Mr. Afenyo said he didn't want to be a prophet of doom.

The big question is, if Mahama could use just four years to begin the construction of at least 55 hospitals some of which were teaching hospitals, how many did Nana Addo build in his first term?

I have an assignment for you as reader, which health facility or facilities around your area have been abandoned? Mention them at the comments section.
