Chiefs and inhabitants of Kabikpe in the North Gonja District of the Northern Region have embarked on a demonstration against the government over a hospital formally intended to be built in Kabikpe but has been redirected to be constructed in another district by the Ghana Health Service(GHS) and the Ministry of Health.
Reporting, Rainbow Radio’s Prince Kwame Tamakloe, said the chiefs and residents have expressed their great displeasure saying that a young man by name Abdullah has connived with the Ministry of Health and GHS to alter the already existing arrangements and have established the hospital in Bukpe instead of Kabikpe.
The demonstration was massive, he said.
This hospital, Specialist Hospital is to provide healthcare specifically for patients suffering from bones and tendon disorders.
He further added that these people of Kabikpe claim they would engage in efforts to ensure that, the specialist hospital is granted to Kabikpe not Bukpe.
“They claim they would embark on demonstrations till the Ministry and the Ghana Health Service reconstruct the specialist hospital in Kabikpe. If it is constructed in another place, we would make sure the building is collapsed”, he told Nyankonton Mu Nsem today (Wednesday).
