President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is optimistic that a good number of hospitals under the Agenda 111 will be completed before he leaves office.
The President said so far 87 of the hospital projects are at various stages of completion. President Akufo Addo speaking on GBC-URA RADIO in Bolgatanga as part of his working visit to the region confessed that some of the targets set for the completion of the projects were overly ambitious.
“As far as Agenda 111 is concerned, I have to confess that some of the targets we set for completing them were overly ambitious. We spent a much longer time agreeing on the sites for the various district hospitals across the country. There was a lot of much more to and froing about where they should be sited than we had anticipated and in fact in some cases is still ongoing.”
President Akufo Addo said despite the delays, the project is an important commitment from the government.
“God willing, a substantial number of them will be completed before I get off the seat. That is an important commitment of the government without any doubt, and we’re continuing the work.”
