The Agenda 111 hospital project in the Garu District of the Upper East Region could be completed soon. When the DCE spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show, he mentioned that the project had reached the roofing stage.
“It is still impressive up till now. We have not gotten to the 60 percent and beyond. We have got to the roofing levels. Last week, we had a site meeting together with the consultants, the Ghana Health Service and all other stakeholders at the site. We were taken through and they are at the roofing stage. The gable materials, beam materials and all that have arrived. They [the contractors] say they have received 99 percent delivery of all the materials. They are just preparing to go on top to roof,” he said.
Should the project continue at this pace, Garu’s hospital would be among the first to be commissioned and put to use in the country.
The DCE commended all the stakeholders for their roles in ensuring the project moves on smoothly.
“Thanks to the contractor that we have. Thanks to the people of Garu who are supporting them [contractor, consultant] massively. Then, thanks to our stakeholders; the decentralised institutions. It is this cooperation that we have put together that is making us get this. I must say that the contractor worked under challenging circumstances yet he is working this way,” he said.
