Donating to dialysis centre for Upper East Region is not compulsory – Dr. Ayine to critics

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Bolgatanga-East Constituency, Dr. Dominic Ayine, has redirected criticism away from opposition MPs, asserting that the ruling government is responsible for the failure to establish the much-needed dialysis center at the Upper East Regional Hospital.

According to the legislator, the opposition MPs in the region have limited resources for the establishment of the center and urged the public to focus their scrutiny on the ruling government.

“It is a public hospital owned by the Republic of Ghana and publicly funded. So, my point is this, if you build a hospital as a government and you fail to equip it, then that is a failure of duty on the part of the ruling government to equip the hospital because they owe us that duty, and not the other way around.”

Speaking to our reporter, Moses Apiah, at a function, the legislator questioned the rationale behind critics targeting Members of Parliament in the region instead of holding the government accountable for fulfilling its duty.

“I think that their attention should turn to the government and hold the government accountable for its failure. That is the point I have been making; I have not discouraged anyone from contributing to the dialysis center.”

He argued that the government, being the mandated authority, should be the primary focus of criticism in relation to the absence of the essential medical facility.

“In any way, the contribution is voluntary; it is not by conscription; it is not compulsory, so, nobody should make it look like it is compulsory and that all MPs, irrespective of the problems they have, ought to commit to the cause,” he added.
