My 5-week US hospitalization opened my eyes to the need for health infrastructure investment in Ghana – Ken Ofori-Atta

Published

Ghana’s incumbent finance minister, Ken Ofori-Atta has said he realized the need for investment in the country’s health infrastructure during his five-week hospitalization in the US.

Addressing the Festschrift in honor of Rev. Prof. J. Kwabena Asamoah-Gyadu, President of the Trinity Theological Seminary in Accra, Mr Ofori-Atta confessed:

“In my five weeks at the Mayo Clinic where they have three shields; faith, hope and science, I came to really understand the nexus between finance and health, and the need for us as a country to be bold about our health infrastructure and our ministry finding every way to be able to fund that, so we protect our citizens.”

On Valentine’s Day this year, the Ministry of Finance issued a statement to inform the general public and stakeholders that Mr Ofori-Atta, who was, at the time, the representative of the President at the Ministry of Finance and Minister-designate for Finance, was to travel to the United States of America today for “a special medical review”.

The statement said after recovering from COVID-19 last December, Mr Ofori-Atta had medical complications which doctors advised, required further interventions not currently available in Ghana.

The complications delayed Mr Ofori-Atta’s vetting by Parliament’s Appointments Committee which became the talk of Ghana as NDC faithful thought it was a calculated attempt by Ken to skip vetting.

His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has boldly and publicly registered his pleasure over the way and manner how his government has fought corruption in the country.

While speaking in an exclusive interview with CNN monitored by browgh.com, he said he is extremely pleased with the way corruption has been handled under his government in Ghana.

According to him, a lot of effort has been put in place to get rid of corruption since assuming the presidential seat and the effort has yielded good and positive results.

He noted that due to his exploits, Ghana now has a better rank when ranking the most corrupt countries in the world.

For instance, the [corruption] institutions that are in the country, when I came into office were very poorly resourced. You can talk all we like about corruption, but if the instruments at your disposal for dealing with it are weak and blunt, you will get no result,” he stated.
