Dr Mahamudu Bawumia says the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) do not like reading.
Mahamudu Bawumia, running mate to President Nana Addo on the tickets of the ruling New Patriotic Party has disclosed that the NDC do not like reading.
That to him is accounting for their constant criticisms on the ruling government.
He also said the NDC is incompetent.
Dr Bawumia speaking on Saturday, June 27, 2020, after he was picked by Nana Addo as his 2020 running mate stated that the current government has succeeded in saving NHIS, reduced corruption in the public sector and implemented the Free SHS policy.
He said the government has further reduced the price for energy by 50 per cent for April, May June this year.
In the first year of the NPP government, he says due to competent management, the teacher and nursing training allowances were restored.
He said in the first year, 15 taxes were abolished, something he said NDC could not do.
According to him, “it is important that we stay the course and not play ‘chaskele’ with the economy,” indirect call on Ghanaians not to elect NDC again.
He promised to also digitize Ghana in their next term.
Govt committed to improve health facilities at Nsoatre — President
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has expressed the government’s commitment to improve the health facilities at Nsoatre in the Bono Region to cater for the health needs of residents there.
The President made the pledge in response to a request by a delegation from the Nsoatre Traditional Council who called on him at the Jubilee House in Accra yesterday.
The council appealed to the government to construct the Sunyani West District Hospital at Nsoatre, instead of Odumase, the district capital.
The delegation argued that the district hospital, which is part of the 88 district hospitals to be constructed by the government, will better serve the needs of the people of Nsoatre, instead of Odumase.
They explained further that Odumase has no genuine need to host the district hospital because there are four major government hospitals surrounding Odumase, including the Sunyani Regional Hospital.
According to them, the cluster of four government hospitals around Nsoatre is scattered within a 16-kilometer radius, adding that “a district hospital cited at Odumase will only become a white elephant” because they have no genuine need for another major government hospital.
Nsoatre on the other hand, they said, has a population of over 26,000 in 35 communities, with a single health centre which receives over 2,700 patients every month.
The council noted that Nsoatre usually records numerous emergency situations and indicated that a district hospital cited at Nsoatre will better serve the needs of the people and surrounding communities.
The Traditional Council promised to donate a land if the government decides to cite the hospital there and gave the assurance that the youth will support the construction of the facility.
President Akufo-Addo said the government will consider their request but did not make any emphatic pledge to grant it.
He said although the Traditional Council has made a genuine case, district hospitals are usually cited at district capitals.
President Akufo-Addo, however, assured that in the event that the government is unable to grant the request after its considerations, it will definitely upgrade the facilities at the health centre to make it a decent health facility.
