Speaking on TV3's Newday. the Deputy Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress, Sunday Casper Kampoli, said the project, though was almost completed by the John Mahama-led administration, has not been equipped since Nana Akufo-Addo assumed office.
According to him, the situation was brewing tension” in the region which could potentially degenerate to a point where the youth will not allow any political campaigns in the region anymore.
“The youth are saying that, if the second phase of the facility is not executed for us to move to the third stage, perhaps nobody will campaign in the Upper East Region… The president, if need be they will try and prevent him from coming to the region”, he said
He noted that despite the delivery of ambulances to constituencies, healthcare delivery in the Upper East Region cannot be near complete if they do not have a state-of-the-art health facility.
Mr. Kampoli, however, called on the President to cause the completion of the second phase of the hospital by way of equipping the equipping the adjunct block, the laboratory, the pharmacy, the accident and emergency centre, which he said were all added by the NDC.
