Why did it take so long for Ghana ministry of health to intervene after project has been abandoned.
Construction of 80-bed capacity Polyclinic at kasoa will soon kick-off according to Ghana Health Minister. The project will aim to help resident of Kasoa have access to good health care facilities.
Speaking to reporters, Minister Kwaku Agyeman-Manu said as soon as funding is secured, the contractors will complete the work. The project is currently under the hands of the Roads and Highways Ministry.
Meanwhile, the project is part of the Kasoa Interchange project which include the one at Ofankor in the Ga South District of the Greater Accra Region.
However, it was reported that both project where abandon due to several factors facing it.
WHY WAS THE PROJECT ABANDON?
During the news conference, Agyeman-Manu said the project has been facing challenges due to funding as the ministry of health were not in charge. Agyeman-Manu said “The Kasoa and Ofankor projects were not started by the ministry. They were packaged as part of the road project.”
According to him, there wasn’t much collaboration between both ministries which made the project to be abandon. But some technical personnel from the ministry of Health where sent to ascertain the situation.
Meanwhile, problem facing the project also emerge during the construction process. From the reports, Kasoa Polyclinic had ownership challenges between the district assembly and the Ministry of Roads. While, the Ofankor polyclinic had not been completed.
Agyeman-Manu said the Ministry of Health had no budgetary allocation but are engaging and working to see how to raise monies to complete the projects.
With the minister statement, do you think the Ministry of road and highway made a mistake of not collaborating??
