The Central Regional chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Allotey Jacobs, has blamed the Health Minister for being responsible for the passing away of Mr. Anthony Opoku Acheamopong, a seventy (70) year old man who lost his life yesterday while he was in the company of his wife and son seeking for healthcare in Accra.
According to Mr. Allotey, the Health Minister should as part of his responsibilities visited all the institutions responsible for health care delivery to ascertain their challenges regularly and bring out reasonable solutions to addressing the crisis instead of sitting down in the office and doing little or no supervision at all.
He revealed this on the Adom FM’S morning show.
He ascribed the late Mr. Acheampon as the messiah who sacrificed his life to correct challenges confronting the health sector in the country and said his death will help prolong the lives of many Ghanaians who face same or similar situations in the various hospitals across Ghana.
“He is the messiah who has laid down his life to help resolve this challenge once and for all” he added.
Chairman Allotey Jacobs has suggested to government to build and maintain ambulance services at accident prone areas in the country to help give immediate medical attention to accident victims. Mentioning the Winneba Cape- Coast road as specific.
Mr. Acheampong lost his life at the LEKMA hospital yesterday at around 2: 00 am after he was denied admission by six other hospitals in Accra with the apparent reason that they had no beds to admit him.
