The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama says the idea for the government’s Agenda 111 project would have been brilliant with a more sensible approach.

According to him, he doubts if the projects will be completed as scheduled by the Akufo-Addo-led government after describing it as overly ambitious.

“This government started their Agenda 111 as they call it and they started with 80 hospitals. I don’t know what survey was done before the hospitals were being put in, but most of them are at a certain stage of completion. One would have thought that they would start with what they can do and finish.

“And so if you can do 40 hospitals, finish and open them, then you start another. But you spread to 80 hospitals, the time they leave office, I don’t think many of them would have been completed.” Mahama told some clergy members in Accra.

The Agenda 111 project is part of the New Patriotic Party’s government health policy of building a hospital in each district and region of Ghana in fulfilment of President Akufo-Addo’s promise to build 111 hospitals nationwide to improve the geographical coverage of healthcare in the country.
