A group known as the Concerned Citizens of Kwahu East on Tuesday, September 21, 2021, took to the streets of Abetifi in the Eastern Region to register their displeasure with the stalled Abetifi District Hospital project.

When completed, the over 200-bed facility which was started by the erstwhile government will serve as a referral centre for all health facilities in the area.

The demonstrators who were dressed in red and black apparel, wielding placards with inscriptions such as “Abetifi Hospital has been left to rot, No Hospital No Vote in 2024, Don’t do politics with our health” among others demonstrated through the Abetifi township.

The protestors in a Citi News interview demanded the completion of all stalled hospital projects before the commencement of new ones are started by the Nana Akufo-Addo government.

The convenor of the group, Godwin Ntiamoah, asked that “the contractor returns to site within the next 18 months.”

Reacting to the concerns of the protestors on Eyewitness News, the Eastern Regional Minister, Seth Acheampong assured of the government’s commitment to completing the project.

“I can confidently say that at the end of this administration the hospital should have been completed because we want to have this project as part of the legacies of this administration.”
