JFK, Nana Present GHC200K Heal Komfo Anokye Project.
General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Justin Frimpong Kodua Esq together with Henry Nana Boakye, the National Organiser on Friday morning donated GHc 200,000.00 towards the Heal Komfo Anokye Project.
Speaking at a brief ceremony at the conference hall of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH), Lawyer Kodua said he and his brother followed proceedings during the official launch of the renovation project two weeks ago.
He noted that they decided to contribute their quota knowing well the project stands to benefit them and Asanteman.
‘’To have seen our King, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II lead the charge for this laudable initiative, we the direct beneficiaries of the project and indigenes of Asanteman could not sit aloof but had to come here this morning and pay our due so that we can also help Prof Otchere Addai-Mensah to give this place the befitting facelift it deserves’’, the General Secretary noted.
The General Secretary expressed his commitment towards the project and noted that he would whip members of the NPP as well as government appointees to donate towards the Project.
He stated the New Patriotic Party as an organization would soon donate, adding the Vice President who leads the party would be briefed to ensure they show up big time.
Lawyer Kodua, however, suggested to the Chief Executive to initiate maintenance and retooling Trust Scheme so that the people in the region and indigenes elsewhere could contribute monthly to the same.
“I would suggest that the CEO initiates a Scheme so that people in the region and indigenes wherever could contribute to the same so as to enable KATH carry out its own retooling and maintenance to keep the hospital in shape’’, the General Secretary suggested.
Receiving the cheque on behalf of KATH, Professor Otchere Addai-Mensah said the Board and Management were grateful for the generous gesture by the two individuals.
He noted that referrals from 12 regions of the country are brought to Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital daily.
This, he stated stretches the hospital to its limits of having to attend to all these cases and maintain the facilities at the same time.
‘’Government cannot do these renovations and maintenance alone and so we were glad that the Asante King decided to lead this Heal Komfo Anokye initiative so we can get KATH in a proper shape to respond to cases more confidently and provide the best environment for visitors and staff’’, the CEO stated.
