The General Secretary of the Ghana Medical Association(GMA), Dr. Justice Yankson, says the clinical organization will hold the decision government to severe responsibility should it win the December 7, 2020 races.
“For NPP promises, what catches the eye is the infrastructure bit. We think that we will hold them to strict accountability, assuming they win the elections and they need to deliver within a certain framework”, he said
“The president has already promised to deliver. Even though there is no timelines, I think that for the district hospitals, it shouldn’t go beyond two years”, he emphasized.
In spite of the fact that he is by one way or another happy with the proclamations of the two gatherings, his anxiety has been the usage plan.
“Now the critical thing is that if you look at the level of infrastructure that they [NPP] want to put up in terms of the numbers, you ask yourself as a people over the last …let say 20 years. Have we ever done anything like that? And even when you look at the individual governments [NDC & NPP] in terms of their tenure…the four year term, have we ever done anything like that, the answer is no”, he expressed unequivocally.
Contending further he stated: “and anytime we have tried to do something, about 20 to 25 percent of it in the four year term, you realized that by the time the party will be out of office, clearly most of it will not have been done.”
