John Dramani Mahama has promised to provide all the six newly created regions in the country with a regional hospital each when he wins the 2020 general elections and comes to power.
He is quoted as saying; “It has remained our policy as NDC that every region must have a well-functioning regional hospital. When we assume government in 2021, therefore, I want to promise you the people of Bono East Region and all the other five newly created regions, that we shall begin the construction of six new regional hospitals in the regions”.
The former president and now, flagbearer of the NDC was speaking at Techiman after the inauguration of an office complex for the Bono East Regional charter of the NDC.
John Mahama is on a two-day working visit to the new Bono East Region to interact with the chiefs and people, and thank the NDC supporters and delegates for their endorsement of his candidature to lead the party to victory in the 2020 general elections.
He assured the chiefs and people that the NDC will not forget its development-oriented philosophy when it wins the elections, but will rather focus on a more rapid development of the country’s social infrastructure.
The Leader of the NDC also urged the newly elected Bono East Regional Executives to work hard to ensure that the party wins all or majority of the parliamentary seats in the new region.
The new Bono East Regional Office was donated by the Regional Chairman, Unas Owusu, to the party.
The former president also donated two vehicles to the regional office to aid in their day to day running.
“I expect that the vehicles will be well maintained and used for the purpose for which they’ve been presented”, he advised.
