North Tongu Member of Parliament, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has expressed his displeasure at President Akufo-Addo for failing to credit the Mahama-led Administration for the construction of the new Ga East District Hospital, ABC News can report.

According to him, although the NDC Administration played a critical role in establishing the new health facility by securing funding and starting the construction, the President failed to acknowledge their contribution.

In a Facebook post Thursday, the legislator, who did not hide his disappointment, demanded of Akufo-Addo credit for the part former President Mahama played in putting up the hospital, stressing that that has no tendency to bring down the government in any way.

“It’s time for a new kind of politicking in Ghana. What does a Politician lose if he acknowledges the work of his predecessor from a different party – absolutely nothing!  Indeed, rather you gain the respect and admiration of many far beyond your base. More so, when we use public funds and not personal resources for all these projects.

“I shall proceed to congratulate President Kufuor for initiating negotiations, President Mahama for securing funding and commencing actual construction and then President Akufo-Addo for overseeing the completion and commissioning of the 100-bed Ga-East District Hospital,” he said.

He further charged government to sit up and expedite action in completing all “abandoned” health facility projects in order avert the numerous avoidable deaths in the country.

“Can we now depart from the pettiness and focus on completing the tall list of abandoned hospitals valued in excess of $1.5billion so that never again will precious lives be lost merely because of a so-called “No Bed Syndrome.”

“We can do far better as Ghanaian politicians,” he admonished.
