Construction Of Agenda 111 Project Still At Ground Level After Government Paid Contractor $1.2m

Work on many Agenda 111 facilities across the country have stalled, including the project at Jasikan in the Oti Region.

It has been revealed that despite the $1.2 million paid to the contractor as a mobilisation fee, the project is yet to start after three years after President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo launched the Agenda 111 project.

The Jasikan project, since the sod-cutting ceremony is still at the ground level.

Ranking Member on the Health Committee, Kwabena Mintah Akandoh said it is worrying for the project to be at its current stage, taking into account the amount of money invested into the project.

He said “Records available to us, each of these sites have been given not less than one million dollars, Jasikan has been given $1.2 which is more than GH¢15 million.

“The only thing that convince me that – that particular site was for Agenda 111 was the sign board. Nobody would have convinced me that, that place is not a football park.”

Akandoh, who doubles as the Member of Parliament for Juaboso stated that the government has no plans to complete the hospitals.

What is even worrying, he stressed, is the lack of dedicated funding for the Agenda 111 project which he feared would become the burden of successive governments.

Nana Addo on August 17, 2021, launched the Agenda 111 project to ensure Ghanaians nationwide have access to quality healthcare services.

Each of them will be a quality, standard-design, one-hundred-bed hospital, with accommodation for doctors, nurses, and other health workers, and the intention is to complete them within a year.

According to the driver, who prefers to remain anonymous, about five police officers stopped his vehicle and claimed he was under arrest for loading at an unauthorized area.

“I loaded passengers from Coast to Takoradi. When I got to Takoradi around 8:30pm on Friday, a police vehicle with about five officers stopped me. They alighted all my passengers and told me I was under arrest and that I will be taken to the office to be processed before court which I agreed,” he narrated on Connect FM‘s Omanbapa morning show team.

He adds that the police officers stopped along the way and demanded he pays an amount of GH¢150G before he would be set free.

“On our way to the Police station, they stopped and told me that if they should take me to the Police station, I will pay GH¢500 and my vehicle will be locked until Monday. They then told me to pay GH¢150 and I pleaded with them to have mercy upon me. They told me I was not serious and that the only way they would allow me to go is GH¢100 for a last price. So I paid the GH¢100 and they left me to go and continue my work,” he noted.

According to the driver, he later realized one of the police officers who entered his vehicle had left his gun in the front seat.

“I could not work again because they had taken all my money for the day. I went home and realized the police officer had left his gun in the vehicle. I have not been able to work for sometime because of the gun lying in my vehicle,” he added.
