The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) is accusing President John Dramani Mahama of engaging in cheap political talk with the Eastern Region under the guise of building a befitting regional hospital for residents.
Eastern Regional Communication Director of the party David Prah, rubbished government’s pledge to build a Regional hospital saying it is one of the numerous empty promises usually made by the President.
According to him, the NDC government since 2009, pledged to build a Regional hospital and a university but all these are yet to see the light of day indicating that the party has now gained notoriety of failed promises.In an interview Bryt FM’s Nyarko Abronoma, he described the ruling NDC government as masters of empty promises and urged people in the region to reject them in the December general elections.
“They promised to build a regional hospital and a university since 2009 but not even a single block has been laid” He stated.
Mr. Prah, however, accused the government of engaging in corrupt activities just to enrich its cronies leaving the general populace to their fate hence, the current poor economic challenges facing the country.
Communication Minister, Dr. Omane Boamah at the launch of NDC’s manifesto at Sunyani pledged the people of the region a regional hospital when voted again into power come December 7.
He also admonished comments that the NPP is a violent party insisting there is maximum peace within the party more than even the NDC who’s Flagbearer; J. J. Rawlings was left out of their manifesto launched.
He, therefore, appealed to people in the region to vote massively for the NPP in order to help reboots the poor touted current economy of the country.
