Work on the Agenda 111 project in the Pusiga District of the Upper East Region has progressed steadily, according to the DCE for the area. The project is just about being roofed.
This came to light when Zubeiru Abdulai, the DCE for the area spoke to Mark Smith on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show.
It would be recalled that when Mr. Abdulai spoke on the same platform in January this year, he expressed mixed feelings about the progress of work done on the government’s Agenda 111 hospital project in his area.
“Yes and No. Yes, in the sense that if you are with them (contractors), you can say that they are doing their best [because] it is a very big project. And no in the sense that I would have wished by now, I should have my hospital completed.”
The progress of work now, according the DCE is impressive and on course.
“Ours is at the lentil level. The contractor has even sent an invitation to a site meeting. They are on site and are doing very well. Mine has two contractors; one for the main hospital and the other for the ancilliary facilities. I want to believe that by now, they are also getting ready to roof,” he said.
In the previous engagement with the DCE, Mr. Abdulai explained that when the project is completed, it will serve the people of Pusiga, and sections of Burkina Faso and Togo that share borders with the district.
He made these comments when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show.
“Pusiga doesn’t have a district hospital, and the nearest hospital we have is Bawku. As you are aware of the situation in Bawku today, many activities have come to halt because of the conflict. There is a lot of stress on my people anytime they want to access healthcare.”
“Pusiga is a unique district sharing borders with 2 neighbouring countries; Togo and Burkina Faso. Most of them make good use of our facilities because ours seem to be better than theirs. With the coming of this hospital, we are hoping and praying that if completed, it would serve the people of Pusiga and our neighbouring countries if need be,” he said.
