You cannot blame NDC in health sector if you are fair – Sammy Gyamfi tells Aba Anamoah

A Ghanaian lawyer and politician who is the current National Communications Officer for the National Democratic Congress, Sammy Gyamfi has said that Ghanaians cannot blame the current challenges in our health sector on the NDC that left power about five (5) years ago.

In responding to the critics by the GHOne TV and Starr 103.5 FM female presenter, Nana Aba Anamoah, Sammy expressed his disappointment to what Nana Aba said.

As a reminder, Nana Aba Anamoah on Sunday 16th May, 2021 at 2:58 PM twittered that “NDC peeps screaming #FixTheCountry. Imagine if you had dealt with the low number of ICU beds alone at Korle Bu.

Imagine if you had ensured availability of defibrillators at our major hospitals. Imagine oo. Just Imagine. You think we’d be here today”?

Sammy Gyamfi after seeing how this message is trends on social media had no other option than to reply her.

He said “I appreciate the concerns you have expressed in the attached tweet but respectfully disagree with you.

It is important to make the point that no government can solve all the problems or challenges confronting its people. So the issue is not the existence of problems or challenges per se, but the contribution of various governments to the solution of those problems is what matters.

The facts show that no party in the history of this 4th republic has done more than the NDC has done in the health sector.

Aside the dozens of health infrastructure projects including a quaternary hospital, 4 regional hospitals, 3 institutional hospitals, 14 district hospitals, 18 health centers, 20 polyclinics, and over 2000 CHPS Compounds that were built across the length and breath of the country, the Mahama administration rolled out the National Medical Equipment Replacement Programme under which US$264 million was invested in the provision of critical diagnostic and treatment equipment for over 150 hospitals nationwide.

This included all teaching hospitals, all regional hospitals, 125 district hospitals, 14 health centers and 8 mobile clinics.

The equipment received by hospitals varied from MRI machines, CT scan, fluoroscopy machine, X-ray machine, oxygen plants, digital Mammography, just to mention a few.

Under this program, obsolete equipment and theatres we replaced and rehabilitated. For instance, at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, the Pediatric Surgery Theatre which remained closed for almost 8 years, the General Surgery Theatre and the Babies Unit were all refurbished and made operational.

All these were achieved with a relatively smaller resource envelope of just about GHc248 billion. Now, the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government has had access to a total resource envelope of over GHc350 billion in the only 4 and years.

The question we should ask them, is what do they have to show relative to investments in the health sector for this gargantuan and unprecedented resource envelope? They have nothing significant to show except consumption, profligacy and corruption.

And that’s why they cannot show any hospitals or significant projects they have built or undertaken in the last 4 and half years in the health and other sectors of our lives.

Therefore in all fairness, you cannot blame the current challenges in our health sector on the NDC that left power about five (5) years ago. Have a nice day and continue doing the great job you are doing for mother Ghana”.

NB: Now to my NDC comrades, let’s exhibit tolerance for criticisms and divergence and state our case with decorum. Thank you.
