President Nana Akufo-Addo presented the government’s plan for the construction of 94 hospitals in the country.
The health project includes 88 district hospitals which are expected to be completed within a year, and six regional hospitals.
This project is part of the pandemic which continues to wreak havoc. Akufo-Addo said the crisis is a wake-up call that the country should strengthen its health infrastructure.
Akufo-Addo announced the project in his eighth speech to the nation on government action to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
“Starting this year, we will build 88 hospitals in districts without hospitals. Each will be a quality hospital, with 100 beds, with accommodation for doctors, nurses and other health personnel. The aim is to complete them within a year. “
The president’s announcement sparked real mockery. On social media, Ghanaians keep wondering how he will succeed in carrying out this project.
“You have not been able to build a single complex in 3 ½ years; now you want to build 88 hospitals in one year, ” said one user.
You couldn't build one chips compound in 3 and a half years now you want to build 88 hospitals in one year. Apuu

“My Ghanaian brothers tell President Nana Addo to finish the existing hospitals and stop making promises that he will not keep , “ said another.
Fellow Ghanaians lets tell Mr President Nana Addo to complete the existing hospitals and stop making promises he will not keep. The last time i checked 1D1F became a scam. 1 Million per constituency another scam . 1v1D another scam.
